Something devastating happened earlier this week and I have been an emotional wreck ever since. Feeling sadness isn’t something we like to feel so most of us, including me, have fought this emotion when it appears. Unfortunately, whether we like it or not, we all experience this emotion of sadness from time to time in our lives. In this meditation, Kristy guides us through this time of experiencing this sadness and invites the idea of even savoring this very raw and exquisite emotion. Trying to acknowledge sadness, my first instinct was to fight it. However, I have learned that fighting this emotion can quickly change to feeling anger. Feeling anger doesn’t make anything better and more so, the sadness is still present once the anger leaves. Realizing this wisdom, I sat with my sadness. Kristy began to explain why I feel sadness and perhaps should even savor sadness. As she says, feeling sadness means I care. It means I love and it means that I also feel the terrible loss I have abruptly experienced in my life. Thus, I shall savor this emotion because it shows that I am a caring and loving person. She goes on by saying that sadness gives us depth by helping to make us a multifaceted human being. Emotions come and go. Sadness is an emotion and therefore, it too shall pass in its own due time. In the meantime, I need to comfort myself as I continue to acknowledge, allow and ‘just be’ with this emotion of sadness.
