It's okay to feel down



It's okay to feel down, to be confused, and to be unsure about it all. It’s okay to forget who you are and why you have come here. Love will take infinite forms, even those of confusion, uncertainty, and forgetfulness, as it erupts into the world of time and space. Stay close.

It's okay for your heart to break when the forms of love dissolve around you, for this is their nature. Coming together and then falling apart, only to come together and fall apart again. Such is the dance of love. It is not evidence of error or mistake, but of surging creativity and reorganization. You may never be able to understand or resolve this activity, for it is that of wholeness and an integration that the conceptual cannot reach.

The presence of heartbreak is not evidence that something is wrong with you. It does not mean anything about your worth as a person, or that you have "failed” or fallen short. It means you are alive.

You need not shift your raw, tender confusion into some "higher" vibration, or apply teachings so that it will transform into something else. It need not be let go, mended, or turned from, ever again. Your shaky, open sensitivity is complete and pure on its own.

Stay close to your disappointment and the breaking of your heart, and surround it with the warmth of your own presence. Not the story “about” it, not the interpretations of it, but with the coursing somatic material at its core. For these sensations are carriers of sacred life energy.

In this way the heartbreak will be revealed to be what it is, a hidden wisdom-guide of aliveness, come to remind you of something you’ve forgotten.
