If you feel sad, just feel sad.
Make room for sadness, today.
Soften around it.
Don’t reject it, numb it.
No need to spin a drama around it either.
Breathe into the heart of sadness.
Drench the belly, heart, throat and head with oxygen.
Let the sensations of sadness tingle, flutter, pulsate and throb.
Let sadness be alive, in this moment.
Know it will pass.
Know it is never a mistake.
You are not sad, you are not ‘the sad one’, you are the home for sadness, this ancient and supremely intelligent energy. You are the container, never the contained, never identified, never at war with feeling.
Be the embrace of sadness, its sanctuary, its great Invitation.
– Jeff Foster
