Finding Inner Freedom
How can you find your freedom right now, in this moment? For those of us lucky enough to not be working on the front lines of this pandemic, we might be struggling with a myriad of emotions on a daily basis. You might be feeling sad, angry, hopeless, guilty or even rageful. And you also might be experiencing joy, peace, and gratitude. It's likely that you're vacillating between a few of those states.
It's important to remember that none of these feelings are wrong. No emotional experience is wrong.
During times such as these, it can be useful to have a mantra such as, "This too shall pass," or "This too belongs." This serves as a gentle reminder that, "No feeling is final." When we have the awareness that emotional states are temporary, this can serve as a gateway for more internal freedom.
