Out with the old, in with the Present

by Daria Boissonnas

I have a spiritual teacher who says if your goldfish dies, it’s OK to be sad for a while.  If you are still sad 12 years later, something is wrong.

Grief and other emotions that drag us down should eventually fade as we come to accept and relate to what happened. When they don’t, something is “stuck”.  You’re still attached in some way.

The more you cut your attachments to things — through contemplation, meditation, healing work, yoga or exercise, prayer, bodywork or more — then the more present you can be in The Present.  And the more you can help change the world for the better.

Many, many blessings on your journey.
