Every living being is a unique symphony. A symphony of loud and soft sounds, of fast beats and slow tunes. Every instrument in this symphony has its place and needs its space to fully unfold its effect. The high notes of a violin can tear hearts, and yet they are necessary to completely draw the sound, to complete the symphony.
In this day and age, we have forgotten about the integrity of our symphony. Nobody ever taught us how to love ourselves unconditionally – how to love the bright and dark sides equally. It is so important that we humans find our way back to ourselves. It is important that we love our lives. And to do that, we have to love ourselves.
Yet, subconsciously, we believe that some of our emotions and experiences are bad, while others are good. So we run after the good ones until they’re sucked empty – and we with them. Because, as we can observe in nature, our inner selves can only grow when there is the right mixture of rain and sun in our lives.
Like in a symphony with its high and low, fast and slow sounds, but especially the silence between the notes, harmony in life can only be obtained when we accept light and dark, comfortable and uncomfortable experiences and emotions as valid and right, to then grow from them.
Running away from anything that isn’t feeling comfortable means living a half life only. Because all of our experiences and emotions, the comfortable and the uncomfortable ones, are guideposts; they show us where we have a resonance to something. But since we have no space to talk about our observations and feelings, we do not understand the signposts.
I’d like to show you how you can give yourself that space. Space to breathe. Space to love. Space to wonder. Space for your depth. Space to be whole.
