Exquisite Agony ...

Isn't it uncanny, how pain and love are so inter-related ...?

It's as if when the pain reaches its crescendo in me ... when I no longer resist it, but allow it to have full expression ... when I do not judge it, but accept it ... I am flooded with love and even gratitude for the experience.

I am SO grateful to no longer be a numbed-out woman, "safely" egg-shelling my way through life, but that I am living full-throttle, and risking ALL ...

I will never-ever regret having loved with all I am ... for giving all I had to give ... for baring everything I have ... and the unbridled JOY of having done so ...!

Even now, even while in pain ... I would do it all over again.

I am finding that joy is not "happiness" (which comes and goes) ... but that joy is the fullness of ALL emotions ...

Joy is the state of being fully human, fully ALIVE...!

Through my tears (of which I am not ashamed!), I say YES to life!


Shalom & Namaste ~

The agony, the tears, the pain; this is joy - our true nature - pushing to the surface. They are the accumulated junk taking form, and then evaporating, transforming.

Stick with it, Dena, 'cos it just gets better:)

What a tiresome, tedious and spawned out old twat. But hey, dig my alliteration.

What a sad cowardly person you are, trawling the interwebs making snarky comments about folks you don't know and will never meet.

Have a nice day, and enjoy your ignorant alliteration.

Anonymous - you are welcome to your opinion. I notice that what others think of me is none of my business.

I choose to put my life out there, openly and as authentically as I now can. If you choose to hide behind anonymity, I hope it brings you what you are looking for ...

Harry - thank you dear friend. I miss you. Wanna schmooze? :)

Sure, Dena, and thanks for still considering me a friend:) You still have the same email address?
