Lately I’ve been gobbling up Jeff Foster’s words because they resonate with something within.
If any of you have Facebook, you’re welcome to gobble up his thoughts about Divine Suicide, too.
Please listen deeply if you’re feeling wounded, stuck, depressed, unable to move forward or backwards. Please listen if you’re contemplating ending your life.
One of the things that it’s teaching me is to be more present to ALL of my thoughts.
What if our thoughts can’t be claimed as ours?
Can we sit beside our thoughts, anyway, and truly listen to them, as we would a dear friend, without trying to change, to heal, to convince?
My December challenge–to myself–is to meet every thought as a friend. To find where I can meet every thought of my own and others in love, in agreement. Not necessarily to act on every thought–but to be deeply present with all the thoughts and emotions that arise.
It’s an Advent gift to myself from myself.
Anyone want to join me?
To meet every thought and feeling as a friend? From now until Christmas?
