For All of the Logic....My Feelings Still Are Louder

I keep trying to understand why I feel so sad this week

.

And then I remember the humanitarian crises that are unfolding all around us.

.

Not just now but all the time it seems.

.

Heaviness in the collective can also highlight your already tender spots.

.

And you might wonder, “why is this bothering me so much?”

.

It might feel unreasonable to *still* have feelings or to have such *strong* feelings about something—especially if you thought you had already moved on.

.

But that’s not how it works sometimes, often even.

.

Sometimes, there is no amount of logic or spiritual practice or reassurance to make a feeling go away.

.

The only thing that really soothes me is feeling the beauty of what is.

.

I think of all of the books and poetry that have been written, the paintings, the films that have been made, from a state of passionate, unrelenting emotion.

.

I feel community in knowing that the sweet suffering of a non-linear healing process is probably the most human thing there is.

.

If you’re feeling heavy, how can you see this as your art? And if not as art, how can you see it as just OK and not a problem to be fixed?

.

Finally, if it helps, rather than try to change yourself and how you’re feeling, what gifts can you offer the collective?

.

Squeezing you so tight, Veronica
