Warmth of Pain

Last night I was watching a Nat Geo show on humpback whales and I was completely overwhelmed by the wisdom of their generations. They do not hesitate to experience their emotions, and seemingly don’t judge them either. There is no greed, yet there is loyalty, which I find can sometimes get confused amongst humans. And there seems to be true, harmonious knowledge of their entire being.

All of this truly left me breathless. Especially when I realized that I have somehow learned to avoid any emotion or action which could be construed as weakness. And somehow I categorized faith, mostly in myself, as weakness as well.

And so my psychospiritual journey continues as I realize just how I had turned to numbing coldness rather than experience the warmth of true emotion. And so this is what I need to reconcile next, because finding harmonious knowledge of ourselves is where we find our potential.
