You are right on track

There will be times, as a sensitive human being, when you are greeted by a coloring of disconnection; waves of sadness, despair, loneliness, confusion, and uncertainty are washing in to your raw, tender nervous system. 

Others are not seeing you as you are. The world is not holding and supporting you. All the old dreams – about love, about intimacy, about your "life purpose" – it's all falling away, dissolving into vast, empty space. You are right on track. 

Will you meet the disconnected one? Will you hold the sad one? Provide sanctuary for the confused one? Enter into intimate communion with the uncertain one? For these ones, too, are grace, come in disguise to show you something about the uncompromising and unrelenting nature of love. Please do not abandon these ones – sending them off as orphans of the heart, into a lonely desert. 

Trust, friend, in the surging intelligence of your somatic-emotional world, exactly as it is arising now. While it may seem that your experience is working against you, please pause and see. The path is everywhere. The beloved has never left your side and will never do so. She will only continue to appear as path, in sweet, fierce, peaceful, and wrathful forms, until your heart and your body are set on fire with her activity.
