In Flux

"The importance of how I feel- on any given day, about any given subject is highly overrated. 
I'm a feeling person, yes, but the truest thing about me isn't how I feel. 
There is something truer than my emotions." 
~ Leigh McLeroy

When things start to look as if they could not possibly get darker, sometimes they do. The peaks and valleys I feel, I'm beginning to receive with curiosity and perspective. Sometimes it's simply how I view my emotions that makes all the difference. 


On one hand is what I feel, on the other, what I know to be True. When an emotion arises, I try not to stomp on it and pound it into submission. 
Let go? Transform? Or receive it? 

"Wherever you are, be there totally. If you find your here and now intolerable and it makes you unhappy, you have three options: remove yourself from the situation, change it, or accept it totally."– Eckhart Tolle
***
Removed.
Changed.
now Accepting.

Is it possible to do all 3 at once? I think so in order to moving beyond the emotions. I often have to realize that emotion or situation is not a reflection of my True character. I release. Watch it pass.


"All will be well.
And all will be well,
And all manner of things 
Will be well."
~ Dame Julian of Norwich
