When you're sad, just feel sad.
Don't try to be happy. Trying is exhausting.
Don't push your sadness away.
Don't numb it.
Don't try to get over it.
Don't try to transform it.
Don't even try to 'heal' it.
You don't even need to accept it.
Realise that it's already accepted.
There is already enough room for sadness in the hugeness of your being.
You are the sky, the sadness is only passing weather.
You are vast; sadness is temporary.
You are eternal; sadness longs for a home.
When you are sad, just feel sad.
Bow to your sadness.
Let it rest, and move.
And you will know its holiness.
God speaks to each of us as he makes us, then walks with us silently out of the night.

The seed of life is within us all, our dance here is mundane, strange and wonderful.
