"Each moment is note in the song of today," is a line in a poem I wrote many years ago while going through a dark night of the soul. It was my attempt to stay with my experience of grief and despair, to feel my feelings all the way through until the grief and sadness cleansed me of all that was not essential and I found myself changed by the experience.
As painful as times like these are that we are going through, it is a powerful opportunity to explore the pain and anguish that often we numb through TV, social media or checking out with substances or addictive activities - that's actually living beneath the surface of life.
When we can feel what we feel and give some kind of creative expression to it there is an ease and loosening of the feeling and it can even give way to a fluid feeling of being connected to life and belonging to our own hearts again. This applies even more to meditation, instead of trying to accomplish something in meditation, allow yourself to track the arising and dissolving of thoughts, feelings and sensations as a kind of music - sometimes harsh and painful, something cool and joyous, but always shifting, morphing and changing into something else. No feeling, sensation or thought is final, keep it flowing and find the music that is flowing through you today.
