Feeling Like Shit as a Gateway to Grace

Sometimes, despite your best efforts and intentions, despite your incredible ‘spiritual progress’, you just feel like shit. So, feel like shit! Where is the problem, in actuality, when you dive fearlessly into the heart of that unique experience? Feel like shit, but consciously so! Dive in, knowingly! And discover that ‘feeling like shit’ can be the most spiritual feeling of all, a fresh (and much misunderstood) gateway to grace, as sacred as the most profound joy, as alive as the creation of a universe. No self-pity, no drama, no justifications, no seeking, just a raw, broken-open heart, a fresh wound re-opened in love, and no desire to escape it at all. You forge a new spirituality with your courage to remain in that broken place, infusing the sadness with your brilliant light.
