Do Not be a Savior to Your Own Thoughts and Emotions

As we begin our journey on the spiritual path, we confront a host of suppressed emotions, thoughts and feelings. It is vital to uncover them and give them the space to surface and be brought into the light of awareness. Spending time with fear, depression, anxiety etc. helps us understand their nature; but make no mistake it’s not going to change them. At some point we must let them grow up and leave the house of our own heart and begin to break up with our trauma by being firm and saying enough, while letting them be on the simple level of our humanity.
