“Silence is sometimes the best answer.” ~ Dalai Lama
Indeed, it is.
I found myself yesterday, in just a small state of overwhelmed—my mind racing through the many millions of possibilities and ‘what if’ scenarios. And, with each new path, these thoughts kicked up so many, many more emotions.
And, when I found myself in this place of ‘there’s really no other place left to go’—I fell to my knees, and cried. I simply cried.
And in that crying, it seems, I let everything go.
I have always wondered why it is that we cry? Wondering over the human physiology of this emotional release, and perhaps even a few of the spiritual ‘how’s and ‘why’s.
But, as I lay in a crumpled mess on my floor—and, in that moment of sniffling in my very next breath…I realized, just how very still everything had become.
And as awareness slowly slipped back into my spirit—the world around me came ‘alive’ once again.
I could hear the tick-tock-clicking of my favorite wall clock…and the gentle snore of a little pup nearby.
And with my next full breath, I heard… the birds fighting over the little bit of suet I had placed by my door… and the screech of the neighbor’s little girl who had just ‘discovered’ her first worm…
All of those little things, came to life again—with each new breath that I allowed to come in.
And just right then, I realized.. that…
Perhaps, even this crying is just a way for my mind to become still again?
“When you lose touch with inner stillness, you lose touch with yourself. When you lose touch with yourself, you lose yourself in the world.” ~ Eckhart Tolle
