Fierce Grace is when Life comes to us in a brutal way to wake us up out of our egoic entrenchment, and into a greater expression of our Divinity.
The energy of tenderness has the power to transform anger, jealously, sadness, and despair. When we are stuck in these feelings it is very difficult to see a way out. When these difficult feelings arise within us, most of us deeply struggle within our painful perspective. Our mind almost always first demands that our external circumstances change in accordance with our egoic desires, in order for us to heal and let go.
But we do not always have the luxury to get what we want externally. Often life does not change, and because of this most of us stay angry at our current circumstances.
We do have a choice though. We can, in any moment become tender with our feelings. We can meet ourselves with love, we can open to our pain in a tender and gentle way. As we do so, our painful emotions naturally release and we begin to experience the joy of our being again, whether or not life's circumstances have actually changed. You see our natural state is one of joy, yet as long as our painful emotions cover this joy, we suffer. But through working with our pain and meeting it with compassion, we heal, release or transform our pain and we are left with our own goodness, joy and compassion.
Through letting go of our minds and falling into our hearts, we come into true alignment with our highest nature. This is our constant invitation. It is through this path, that we awaken to that which is greater than our egoic sense of self. Join Craig in Satsang, in the discovery of our True Nature.
In this meditation Craig guides us through the process of letting go. Through first relaxing and then breathing into whatever emotional pain is within us, we begin to accept and release that which is no longer serving us. By being willing to fully feel and embrace our pain, it begins to release and we are left free and open.
