I feel very strongly that we all reach a time in our lives when teachers cannot lead the way. When we look outside of ourselves for support, we will not always find it. It is during these times that we must look deep inside of ourselves to find the support we are seeking.
I do believe that God lies within us and everything outside is a reflection of what's inside. So the pause is an opportunity to go inside once again and get quiet enough that you can hear and let the next move unfold for you. It's a magical practice. Let the next move unfold for you.
If you feel pain and heaviness in the heart, know that the only way to the other side, is by going through it. Not by trying to control or manipulate what arises. But by feeling what comes up and staying with it.
