Emotions: Guests with a Message
Emotions are meant to inform, help us integrate experience as we move toward our wholeness…if we listen deeply and attend to them. There may be some healing or integration that is being pointed to via emotions or it may be simply that the energy needs to move through you to be released. Fundamentally feelings are energy in motion and as such are meant to inform, be processed (learned from) and let go of lest they get stuck in recurring loops within our body-mind.
This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and attend them all: Even if they are a crowd of sorrows, who violently sweep your house empty of all its furniture, still, treat each guest honorably. He may be clearing you out for some new delight.
