Trust and Vulnerablility
Deep within is an essential energy that contains a magnificent wisdom. It is a wisdom that seeks to lead us towards health and wellbeing. And perhaps more importantly, this energy is within you, within me and within everybody who has or ever will inhabit this planet.
In order to access these amazing life serving qualities there are two things we must do.
· First of all we must listen intently to what is going on inside our body. We must listen without resistance to all our feelings, needs, desires and perceptions and I do mean all.
We must learn to welcome what we find rather than push it away. We must trust that our loving acceptance is a tonic for our healing and wellbeing.
· Secondly we must learn to courageously share what we find in safe environments. We must be aware that some environments are safe and others not so safe. We must be vulnerable and sensibly transparent with those around us; for vulnerability is the price of admission to wellbeing.
These simple suggestions are easy to state yet profoundly difficult to accomplish. Nevertheless each time we listen to ourselves, lovingly accept ourselves and share ourselves in safe environments we move in the direction of wellbeing.
And when we push away or hide from our experience we are moving toward some form of illness. It has been said that all forms of pathology can be linked to the inability to listen to ourselves. From my own experience and from the experience of those I have walked with I would certainly agree with that assertion.
