So many times we try to keep something away, whether it’s a thought, an emotion, or physical discomfort. We are told we should not allow feelings of fear, concern, disappointment, anger or hopelessness in. So we try to push them away. Or if we do feel them, we let them part way in, and then they get stuck.
Feeling good 24/7 is not encouraged in this world. How could we possibly feel good when others are suffering. The homeless, war-torn countries, poverty, and disease are rampant. People are suffering emotionally. There is loneliness, heart break, despair. We may know people in our own life that are suffering.
