Lightly

“It’s dark because you are trying too hard.
Lightly child, lightly. Learn to do everything lightly.
Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply.
Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them."

- Aldous Huxley
Painting by Mairi

I love these words by Aldous Huxley. Beautiful, profound truths are often easy to resonate with, but not so easy to apply. Feeling lightly when you’re feeling deeply can be very challenging. I especially find this with anger, which for me is the most toxic of emotions…it always leaves me feeling as though I’ve violated my soul, and polluted the Universe.

There is much to feel angry about these days in this troubled and sometimes cruel World. I often have to take myself to a place of surrender…to accept my smallness within the vastness…to go inwards and reconnect with love…the most powerful power I have..Mairi💙

  1. These are absolutely beautiful words, they touch me deeply. I have been exploring/cultivating just that – how not to afflict myself while feeling so deeply. I agree with you about anger feeling like a violation. Your painting is soothing and so apt for the words 💛

    1. Thank you so much for connecting 💙. Yes, exactly that…finding ways to allow yourself to feel deeply without it becoming overwhelming and turning into negative energy. I too am working on that. Much love.💙🌻🌼
