This season of so much social distancing provides a perfect space for this practice of loving-kindness to work toward healing the broken relationships in our lives and to spread loving-kindness to the world around us at large. Will you join me in making this a daily practice during this challenging time?
An important part of the healing process is letting go of our identification with what has happened to us and the broken places it created even as we hold tightly to the kintsugi gold we've discovered during our healing.
The work we do toward healing our wounds does as much (or more) for everyone around us as it does for ourselves. We have the choice to continue to transmit our suffering or to do the hard work of transforming that suffering so we can transmit healing and compassion.
