Trusting Experience

Invites us to honor the relative truth of any given experience inside of us, while discerning what is happening. It is often an invitation to trust the unknown, to include non-rational experiences, and points to something beyond our individual consciousness.

To get a feel for this, find a self-judgement, especially one you want to get rid of. Now imagine the judgement spoken with compassion and wisdom… what is the gift it is offering you?

An example for me is I often judge myself for taking care of others when I’m really just uncomfortable with something in the connection. Listening to this discomfort underneath caretaking and sharing it openly can bring a deeper care, and a greater sense of my own power. So instead of a tepid caretaking I’m able to bring a powerful love that embraces both of us.
