It stirs my soul to see someone crying,
whether they feel happy or sad.
I was listening to a story the other day and it touched me so deeply that my eyes filled with tears. The story was about betrayal, yet I felt something deeply divine in the opportunity that this violation had created. I was so incredibly touched. I don't even know if I was happy or sad, it just touched my soul beyond measure. I cried. It was a great liberation, not needing to be any other way than true to myself...
Yesterday I cried too. I felt sad. In my life I've cried many tears of sadness.
Tomorrow I might cry because I can't contain my laughter.
Whenever I see someone crying as they suffer, I see them releasing their pain.
To cry is to hold our vulnerability up to the storms of life and say
"I am being true to how I feel".
To cry is to say "I am enough".
To cry is a great liberation.
To hold back your tears, is like denying ourselves the opportunity to heal.
To cry is to cleanse and wash away our inner burdens.
So if you want to cry, I say cry! And I honour you all the more for it.
