And then the overwhelm lands, flonk, in your lap.
The emotions jangle. The tension, the sadness, the anxiety and bubbling anger.
And it fuels the thoughts. Loops it round and around.
Bad feeling. Bad thought.
Is it so bad? Or is it just another expression of the moment? The who you are right now. The what you are experiencing that just is, is and is.
It’s tough to remain in peace and equanimity when you feel so crushed by the feelings and their accompanying thoughts.
But maybe just write it all out at length. Spill your guts onto the page. Vomit the thoughts out, so their powerful tug is lessened. And then go and sit. Close you eyes. And take some breaths. Feel the expression of these thoughts and feelings as they ripple over and through your body and mind.
These unwelcome guests may just be messengers from god. An invitation to come closer. A wide-armed welcome that leads you to the divine.
Because you ARE the divine. And everything you feel is just that too.
Little. Bits. Of. God.
Expressed in their most powerful human form.
