Allow the feelings

Feelings come and feelings go. There is no need to fear them and no need to crave them.

Be open to your feelings and experience them while they are here. Then be open to the feelings that will come next.

Your feelings are a part of your experience. Yet no mere feeling, however intense it may seem, is your permanent reality.

Are you holding yourself back in an attempt to avoid a particular feeling? Or are you clinging so tightly to an old, faded feeling that you miss out on much of what life now offers?

Allow the feelings to come and then allow them to go. When you let the feelings flow naturally and gracefully through your life, they become more valuable, useful, instructive and fulfilling.

Seek to let your feelings be and then to let your feelings go. Fully experience life as it touches you, and you will grow richer with each moment.

— Ralph Marston
