Getting comfortable with the uncomfortable

Recently I’ve discovered that I’m starting to be OK with being uncomfortable….

With being challenged….

With being uncertain…

Maybe I read something that brings up feelings of horror or sadness…

Maybe someone says or does something that I feel at odds with…

Maybe I upset someone…

I pause….

I notice the physical sensations that I experience with the emotions and how I label them…

I breathe…

I observe the thoughts, the stories that I might be telling myself about the situation that aren’t necessarily true.

I open my heart to those involved and what I don’t know about them, their life and their situation.

I breathe again.

I see if I can soften.

I listen to my heart and notice how it may respond differently to my mind.

It’s so interesting…

I am learning so much about myself, my conditioning and beliefs that I may be holding too tightly onto…

The discomfort and apprehension have become my allies in un-doing all that I am not, so that I can live authentically and fully as that which I am.

I am love.

Thank you to my teachers, to all of life’s teachers.

We will be exploring this more in our September meditation classes on Zoom.
