Resilience

Becoming

I don’t know how it’s done – how one recovers from difficulty. I’m thinking of grief, and now also, the devastation in Japan.

These things seem to work for me:

Trust feelings, find a good listener, talk, feel some more, cry. Have a cup of tea. Talk, contain the feelings, let what’s underneath surface. Receive love, cry, don’t think, feel. Rest. Be gentle.

Connect.

Be unforced, and open to healing whenever and by whatever means it comes.
