truth is about trusting experience

In my end is my beginning.

~T.S. Eliot

this heart-wrenching in-between place of taut and wreckless knowing…

inquiry for today~ sift through to the good stuff……

a deeper edge

Fear haunts us throughout our life, often hiding behind other emotions like sadness and anger. Even when we attempt to address fear directly in a safe, therapeutic context, it quickly hides under thoughts, interpretations, and almost anything to keep us from the difficult work of feeling it. The best medicine is love. In this regard, self-love is not frivolous or indulgent, but actually necessary to heal trauma. Incredible healing comes when we combine mindfulness with self-compassion. Self-soothing is one way we can use love as a remedy to fear.
