Notes from India

Actualizado: 30 de oct de 2019

How long have you been running away from yourself?


From a young age most of us have developed a personality through which we receive love. Usually, very far from our Essence.


Gradually we lose touch with ourselves completely


In our culture we are so well trained to avoid feeling our emotions. Taking the gaze away from whatever contains pain


There are countless ways we run away from It


Numbing through substances, medicating, meditating, shopping, overeating, scrolling down, netflixing, pleasing, playing small, codepending, spiritually bypassing


Yet, pain is the way to Love


Uncomfortable emotions contain the nectar of Life


We are so keen to fool ourselves, again and again


Sooner or later we are called to return back home


Our emotions are our compass of this sacred journey

Sitting with our pain

Witnessing

Accepting some difficult realities about ourselves

Welcoming back the exiled parts of ourselves


Facing our deepest fears

Our deepest darkness


Giving up our personal story and all the stories in our head

Start disappointing the others around us

Loosing friends and followers


Giving up all attachments

Material possessions, toxic relationships

Successes and losses

Outer expectations

Even giving up our beauty

The need to be loved through our role


Breaking through the persona


Finally feeling worthy to be loved


For who we are


Exactly as we are
