The truth of the Universe is inside you and it is called unconditional love

I was in tears

I was listening to a story today about orphaned baby elephants. First, I must tell you that I adore elephants. I love how they are so similar to us and how they are so bonded to each other, and they stick by each other and support each other. I just think they are absolutely remarkable. So, I was listening to the story and I became choked up when they were talking about how the orphans are released back into the wild, but that they have such a strong bond with the humans that raised them as their own. Once the babies are released, they still come back to visit the humans for different reasons. One reason would be if they have a new baby. They want to share their happiness with their human “family”. They come back if they are injured because they know their humans will help them. They come back during a drought because they know they will be taken care of and given water. I was literally in tears listening.

THIS is the truth of the Universe

I am very sensitive to all things involving animals and love. I thought that was the reason I was crying. But when I really listened to the answer that came to me when I asked , “why am I crying”, (not that it really matters, because when we cry it doesn’t always matter *why*, it is *always* cleansing, but I was curious), I got the response, ” THIS is the truth of the Universe, THIS feeling you have is the feeling that we are *all* connected, you are crying because of happiness and because of sadness. The happiness is that we are unconditional love when we are able to *see* the truth through the eyes of the Universe. We are all connected in a way that is instinctual, IF our instinct hasn’t been conditioned out of us. A few years ago, I wouldn’t have questioned *why* I was crying. I would have assumed I was crying because there was something wrong with me, I was *too* sensitive, I was weird for crying at such a story. THESE are the conditioned beliefs that I have been working on healing. On some deep level, I knew the truth. I *wanted* that feeling of the connection between the elephants and the humans, or even the connection between the elephants themselves. It has been said that elephants are telepathic with each other…..hmmmm

people really see that our world is in disarray *because of* the disarray of our dysfunctional minds.

This is the reason I was sad. I know that our world has much work to do before we can all get to the point of trusting ourselves enough to trust each other. I know that we have a long way to go before people really see that our world is in disarray *because of* the disarray of our dysfunctional minds. I know that so many people are working on healing their old conditioned beliefs, the beliefs that are so mis-guided. The chaos inside our heads is shown to us everyday on the news, in the newspapers, and by the people talking constantly about the negativity. Inside chaos=outside chaos. The craziness in our world right now is the mirror of the craziness going on inside most people’s heads. Until we are all able to heal the dysfunction in our minds, the connection that exists between all living beings and things cannot be seen clearly by all. We get glimmers of it. We are able to *feel* the truth at times-the truth of holding a newborn baby for the first time, the feeling of a connection with someone who loves you unconditionally, the feeling of your pet when they trust you 100% and love you no matter what time you feed them and whether or not you pet them enough. Hold on to these feelings-they are real! They are *who we really are*. All of that other crap that is put on us by society, by our parents, by teachers, by adults, by anyone else-is just that *complete crap*!!!!! The reason so many people are depressed is because instinctively on a deep level their body *knows without a doubt* what true unconditional love feels like. Your body is giving you a huge red flag when you are depressed. You are depressed because you are living a life that is going away from the universal truth within us all. The truth that you are loved 100% all of the time, NO MATTER WHAT. No matter what you have done in your life, no matter what your childhood story is, no matter what non-verbal and verbal messages you heard, even if you are still hearing those messages and you are 85 years old.

we are love-we are here to love and to be loved

Inside of you resides the truth of who we really are-we are love-we are here to love and to be loved. We are expressions of one universal truth. Every single one of us is here on purpose. You were created ON PURPOSE, so matter what message you were led to believe. Any other message is a total crock of doodoo (big huge elephant doodoo, I must say). Make no mistake, our truth is what the elephants know. They know that they love each other, they need connection with each other, they mourn each other when one passes, but they also know that we are all in this together, and we are all connected on a very deep deep level. Namaste, my friends. I am honored to be a part of you, and thank you for being a part of me.

Letting the tears and the emotions flow

Written by Amie on November 20, 2009 – 12:10 am -

Falling apart at the drop of a hat

It is scary to feel like I can just fall apart at any minute. Lately I feel as though I will cry at the drop of a hat. I feel raw with emotion. I know this isn’t a bad thing, but when I feel vulnerable, it still feels scary. As much as I remind myself, I still forget, “this too, shall pass”. Thankfully, my dark spots are not the size of a crater anymore, but nonetheless, they can still feel debilitating when they last for more than a few days. I try to remind myself  it will pass if I just allow myself to “be with it”. Of course, that can be the hardest and sometimes the most painful part. I know that I have a pretty sensitive nervous system. I feel grateful that I discovered this so I could stop beating myself up for “being so sensitive.” I am learning to love this about myself, rather than hate it. Most of the time, that is. For the past few days, I have strongly disliked this fact.

Many tears flowing

There have been many tears the last few days, but the release feels good. I can tell there is more to come. The tears have retreated for today. Each time I just stay with my sensation of being stuck, I am able to release more and feel better. When I try to fight the feelings and push at them, they remain with me, and they push back harder. I must keep reminding myself that I am peeling back the layers of emotions as my body is ready to release them. As much as I want it to be over with, I can’t hurry the process. I really am exactly where I am supposed to be. Damn, that is a hard thing to remember in the midst of the struggle. Once I am able to get my fingertips to the top of the hole to pull myself out, I am hit with a huge ah-ha moment. I realize once again, that I always feel better after the struggle. I do want to say that there was a time when I was just in a constant struggle, there was no, “this too, shall pass”. It never passed, it stayed right where it was because I had no idea how to be present with it.

The struggle with dark emotions

Sometimes it is still hard for me to put into words what is happening inside me when I am struggling with dark emotions. I can just explain the sensation of what my body is telling me. Today I felt as though I had a rock lodged in my stomach. After sitting with this sensation for about 15 minutes, I noticed that my body was telling me that the “rock” in my stomach was a feeling of being unsafe and scared. Of what? Not really sure, but it also doesn’t always matter.  With the help of my therapist, I tried to give the “rock” a voice, to ask it what it was afraid of. This is something you can do for yourself if you are not working with a therapist. I was able to feel in my body that there was something pushing against the “rock” to keep it stuck there. I discovered that I was feeling too vulnerable and also unsafe. I was able to get to a place of feeling safe by thinking of a time when I *did* feel safe. Once I let my mind and body go to the place of feeling safe, the stuck feeling did dissolve. I had to remember there was no “goal” to the process. I wasn’t trying to make it go away, I wasn’t trying to solve the problem, I was simply trying to let the sensation have a voice.

Trust yourself, trust your body

Our bodies are so much a part of our emotions. Even when our minds can’t figure out *what* or *why* we feel a certain way, the feelings in our bodies are telling us enough information. It is the mind that wants to make us think we have to “figure it all out”. Believe me, my mind tries to convince me of this on a regular basis. I talk to myself often. It is necessary to put the mind in it’s place, so to speak. It really can convince us of anything if we listen to it long enough. Three years ago, I couldn’t answer the question, “how are you feeling”, or “what is alive in you right now”? Today, I am able to feel the places in my body where I hold my emotions. My stomach is the first place my emotions go. Trusting my body feels good. It will only allow what I can handle to come to the surface. My fear of completely exploding will not happen. My body is my protector. It will let me know when it needs to release. Trust yourself, trust your body.
