Everything’s gonna be alright.

December 24 – Everything’s OK. What was the best moment that could serve as proof that everything is going to be alright? And how will you incorporate that discovery into the year ahead?

I knew everything would be alright when I hit rock bottom and survived. When I reached my emotional breaking point (luckily in the privacy of my own room), I was able to watch my storm of emotions (hurt, anger, frustration, sadness, and on and on) and feel my intense physical pain (head and neck aches) and cry (I mean, moan and wail like an animal).

Being able to watch and know all the while that these difficult emotions and sensations were temporary and passing, as everything is, serve as proof to me that everything is alright. I will incorporate that discovery by continuing to practice insight meditation and to notice and watch my thoughts, feelings and sensations pass as I practice in order to also have equanimity and compassion in my day-to-day life.
