YEP–HEALING IS REVEALING! 🙂
Healing, which shares etymology with whole, healthy, and holistic, needs patience to achieve. There are no quick fixes.
I find an axiom that serves me well is to think of my meditative practices as practice. It is in those moments that the struggle sometimes becomes clearer, making my life wholer. Other times, I fall short.
I told hockey players to take risks in practice and the same can be said for meditation and other practices to make myself whole and healthy. Another practice is walking, which I treat like a form of meditation. I try to remember I am part of nature, not outside it. This helps make me feel more whole.
Let yourself go!
