Take a moment and look inward. Are you feeling any thoughts of despair? Are you weighed down by a lack of motivation or utter hopelessness? I invite you to lean into these ways of thinking. If you are feeling despair, welcome in grief. Grief calls forth a deeper level of involvement with the things we love.
The expression of grief may bring the soul to a song, the expansiveness to a masterpiece, or have an elegance of beauty through its words. If we allow grief to move us fully, our expression exalts beauty.
It is inside our ways of feeling pain that we find the beauty in ourselves to cry the tears of our ineptitudes and weaknesses. It is in these moments where our pain attracts the medicines for our cure.
