Just for Now
For a moment or more, just connect to the pain in your body.
Pain is like a crying child. Don’t shush the crying without knowing the reason.
Before you silence the crying child, listen to why she is crying.
Then, seek a solution. Before you take a pain killer, sense why the pain has arisen. Then, seek relief. If it keeps rising, seek a cure.
When the pain subsides, you may become aware of gentler pains, discomforts. Connect to the discomforts of your body. Listen. What are they are conveying to you? The discomfort is as a whining child. Don’t stop the whining before you know what the child is saying.
You are the elder, the one with the ability to seek out solutions. You are the healer, the one who can bring harmony to your body. You are the healer who is within a body, a place of many children, crying, laughing, smiling. Take strength from the smiles and laughter and help the children to stop crying.
This week we are beginning an initiative online and also in our physical spaces.
