No Feeling is Final

Rainer Maria Rilke wrote,

"Let everything happen to you

Beauty and terror

Just keep going

No feeling is final."

Sometimes our emotions can be uncomfortable or frightening… they can seem mysterious. We think, “Where is this emotion coming from? Why is it here? How long will I have to feel this?!”

It can be a great comfort to sense how emotions are always on the move, passing through like waves. We can be in touch with our emotional state AND know that it will change, is probably already changing now.

This helps us to hold ourselves with more lightness and curiosity, to allow ourselves to just be, rather than forcing or resisting, rather than trying to figure everything out.

Join me for this meditation, an opportunity to practice tuning in to the feeling tones of this moment.
