love note no.9
"You are not the drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean in a drop." - Rumi
I will never forget the flash of clarity I felt the first time I read these words.
In any moment, you can feel like a drop or an ocean.
It's a blueprint for how to deal when stuff gets insanely hard in relationships.
When you can't handle the situation, the information or the emotion.
Close you eyes. loosen your grip. on your muscles. on your mind. on reality.
And get bigger
Give the hurt, the heartbreak, the fear more space.
The part of you that is as vast and expanded as an ocean is where the power is.
And the peace.
