We can be broken-hearted and still enjoy the beauty of a blossom on a branch.
We could lose the thing we love most and still flourish, still love, still be grateful and amazed by life. The secret is to not argue with reality. Whatever shows up: go into it fully, feel it fully, let it take over you fully. Be a broken-hearted mess for a while. The resistance to the reality of our lives is what causes the suffering. We can be broken-hearted and still enjoy the sunrise, still enjoy the beauty of a blossom on a branch, still love the people around us, still feel gratitude for all the gifts that come our way constantly. Who we are at our core can never be touched by loss and grief. Who we are is life manifesting itself through us-always connected and always flowing (if we don’t let our minds get in the way!)
