Learning to heal 

We must look at ourselves over and over again in order to learn how to love, to discover what has kept our hearts closed, and what it means to allow our hearts to open.  Jack Kornfield

From a young age we have been taught to believe in love, happy endings and fairytale hopes. 

But where along the way were we taught how to face sickness, death, grief, anxiety, and loss?

Because of this, society is overwhelmed as we struggle to understand how to face these difficult challenges and our inability to trust and know deeply, that if our hearts break open, we will survive. 

Often it’s not until we are drowning in our pain, that we realise we know nothing about this path. Worse still, as we search for answers and support to work through this difficult time, we discover no one else does either! 

Society has trained us to believe that if we unravel or fall apart through these difficult challenges, then at some point we need to tidy it up, push it down or better still, lock it away, as it may make others feel uncomfortable. Besides, how long does it take to get over anyway? 

The answer is there is no timeframe. Each of us has a unique rhythm and timing of suffering and healing.

 Allow space for this pain to arise in you and others. Learn to see what this pain reveals in you, and how it can change your path and create new beginnings. 

Take time to nurture, heal and accept these wounds as part of our journey.

Orchestra of life 

In this vast cosmic orchestra, peace is the music of every heart. Our happiness lies in understanding, listening and honoring that music.  Amit Ray 

If life is an orchestra, then what instrument have you found that expresses the music of your heart? 

Over time, I have learned which are not my instruments in life and I have tried a few of them! Sometimes I have believed I should play instruments that don’t suit me, or that I  believe others would want me to play, but that has never allowed peace or happiness in. 

Being in an orchestra means we are apart of the entire music piece and each of us has a gift to play our part well, so that the music flows easily and sounds beautiful. 

I have learned that no matter where I go in life, I am still apart of this orchestra and each decision I make, affects the music around me. 

The timing of my music is also vital to the harmony and flow of the orchestra. 

There are times when I need to play my part and there are times when I need to sit, listen and wait, so that others can play their important part too. 

When I truly know what my part is and I honor and practice that each day, I begin to connect to an infinite source of music, and learn to create harmony in every part of my life.
