We are not meant to hold it in. None of it.
If you think about how we are created.
We inhale, then we exhale.
We eat, then we shit.
We drink, then we piss.
We are vessels that everything is meant to pass through.
As women our body’s take a seed and create a child.
And that passes through us too.
In one spectacular moment, life shatters through our body.
And where there was one, there is now two.
The most beautiful passing that happens, in my opinion.
This physical self of ours is essentially the train station for all things.
From breath, to food, to water….to life as we know it.
It’s all impermanent.
Just a stop along the way.
What if we took that idea and used it with regard to pain, anguish, unrest….
What if we took every trauma, every sad moment, every sad story, and we let it wash through us, like water through a hose?
What if we breathed in all the pain of a heart breaking moment, and we exhaled it with sweet release?
What if we let all the hardship, all the pain, all the trauma, all the heartache….
What if we let it all pass through us too?
What if we acknowledged it’s impermanence, and knew to let it pass on the next train?
It wasn’t meant to stay with us.
It wasn’t meant to live in us. It wasn’t meant to stay.
Just like the food, the water, the breath and the life, it was not meant to stay.
We weren’t meant to carry this stuff around inside of us.
It was ALWAYS meant to pass through us.
What if all that hurt and pain that we hold onto, manifests in ugly ways, because we were too stubborn to let it go?
Because it does.
What if we became so resilient, that we could breathe in every sadness, every pain, and in one swift move, we let it flow down our cheeks as a tear, or a sob?
It doesn’t have to be pretty.
It can look however you want it to.
There’s no right or wrong way.
Maybe you breathe it out by screaming at the top of your lungs.
Maybe you exhale it out with body racking sobs.
Maybe you simply recognize it, and release it from your heart with a deep breath and the words of “goodbye” and “thank you”…
Don’t you dare sob and scream without saying goodbye and thank you.
Don’t you dare sob and scream while it’s tethered to your heart, never truly letting it go.
Promise to sob, to scream, to hug it tightly, and then two hand push that shit away.
The point is, you MUST let it out.
You MUST set it free.
It’s not meant for you to hold on to.
You are strong, and beautiful and perfect as you are.
But you were not meant to hold, to carry, this back breaking weight.
You were meant to let is pass through you.
You were meant to be a sieve.
To experience it, and let it go.
Sending it to the ethers for eternity.
You were meant to learn from it, to be grateful for it, and then release it, as your body naturally releases everything else that serves it.
Everything is meant to pass through us.
Even our spirit. Our soul. Our consciousness.
It’s not meant to stay within.
Our soul being a temporary tenant in a house that gradually becomes so rundown that it’s uninhabitable.
And then it must exit the premises.
The more shit that we hold onto,
The more we let build up,
The more we keep things from passing through,
The quicker the house becomes condemned.
At some point, the body finally kills itself because it’s the only way to find release from what we were never meant to hold.
It’s an unconscious suicide.
The cure being consciousness.
Consciousness to LET. IT. GO.
Whatever “it” may be.
“It” was not meant to be held, to be nurtured, and to be cared for by you.
“It” was meant to PASS THROUGH you.
To be a lesson learned and a pain forgotten.
We’re not meant to hold on to the things we do.
It’s meant to pass through.
Just like our spirit, soul, mind, consciousness….
It wasn’t meant to stay in our physical body.
Always meant to pass through.
And we forgot, we are meant to pass through this body too.
It is but a simple vessel that was never meant to house us eternally.
This physical self is just a nice stop along the infinite spectrum of light. Meant to be cared for and loved, and then laid to rest as we pass on to the next.
And if you think about it that way…..then why do we hold onto everything else?
Especially once it has already served us?
Especially once it has already happened?
Walk with lightness and love my friends. Your heart, your body, your mind, were meant to walk lightly.
