Healthy and Unhealthy Emotional Security
You are always safe, my love.
Nothing will hurt you.
No matter what you say,
pleasing to the ears of others
or troubling and confronting,
you are still safe. Your heart knows
that honest words
build a nest
where you can truly rest.
It is safe to feel, my love.
No matter how charged or challenging
your feelings may be,
when they already move through your heart
they’re like a magnificent thunder bolt
that can only brighten the skies
without breaking them down.
And the rain, my love,
is the shower that cleanses your soul.
It is safe to want what you want.
No matter if it seems as far
as the horizon line,
fleeting as the wings of a butterfly,
what your heart yearns for
has a safety belt
that will hold you
throughout any bumpy ride.
The only thing that is unsafe for your heart, my love,
is to deny yourself the freedom
to be, to feel, to love
who you are
right at this moment.
Everything will change in your life. Thoughts about what should happen, financial gain, the value of your professional experience, friendships, future plans, decisions, promises made or given, wishes and dreams, statues, your whole view of life.
Even the worst scary or vicious thoughts change and pass away.
Even what feels good right now will change and pass away.
Even who you thought you are becoming doesn’t feel now exactly as you had imagined it in your mind.
A healthy emotional security then, starts from landing onto the ground
of this moment, with awareness parachute, opening
your heart wide as the skies
to whatever is present
at the core
of its lively honest pulse.
Whatever you avoid
shapes you as much as
what you face.
Only that what you avoid
creates holes in your heart
and what you face
fills is more than you
could have imagined.
Creating a healthy emotional security
when we reach out to fulfil heart-wishes
and life dreams can be confusing.
We want to reach towards the new
but it doesn’t feel all that safe to leave the old,
and the new, oh it can be exciting but also intimidating.
If you wanted to create a safe space where you can reach out
towards your heart-wishes with greater ease and confidence,
I have a workshop coming up:
