Emotions and Behaviors

This is an article that was shared on Facebook by the Omega Institute.  The institute is located in Rhinebeck, New York and hosts a "Veterans, Trauma, and Treatment" educational retreat each Fall. Look for it next summer if you are interested in attending.

I thought the article was worth sharing here because it resonates with some of what I've spoken about in this blog about allowing ourselves to "feel" when something comes up.  Emotions are not our enemies.  They are teaching us to release, to heal, to learn boundaries, and to determine what we stand for. If we allow them to rise consciously, knowing that their stay is temporary and holds a valuable lesson, it makes their presence easier to manage.  They are not a weakness.  They are simply a tool to guide us through life.

Like waves in the ocean, there are days that will be calm and flowing.   Storms, however, do roll in and the waves do thrash, only to return to calm again. It's an ever flowing cycle, one that the ocean doesn't seem to judge, so if we view ourselves in this way we can allow storms to be present without them taking over our very being.
