You are used to instant gratification. The way information is instantly available makes waiting for rewards and results ever more challenging, does it not? You want to instantly feel better when waves of sadness fill awareness. What if the goal of the soul is not to feel better but to get better at feeling? Why, then, you would not want to instantly sedate or negate what you are experiencing. Notice it. Watch it. Observe with compassion the body’s responses to waves of emotions and become a master surfer. Do this often and observe any feelings of emptiness become fullness.

You are so very loved.
