AS YOUR BODY AND LIFE FALLS APART….
How blessed I feel to be finally able to be with those parts of me that I have neglected for so long. Unknowingly yes, but that does not take away that I have left myself standing in the dark with no care and no love. Now it's my time to make up. No wanting to fix it, heal it, let it go or whatever term we love to use when we want to get rid of something…… I am determined to make up for my past neglect by giving them my love, compassion and foremost all the time they need. To be fully with them, to let them be part of my life and not to hide them, pushed them to heal, intervene or to cover up anymore. Those parts complete me in a way that I can’t describe.

I learned to welcome with no resistance all I experience— the hardly bearable physical and emotional pains and the indescribable great sensation — and all that by simply observing and experiencing my inner world.

Joy and happiness have nothing to do with each other. Read here how not knowing this sabotages your life choices.
That I lived for the longest time in limbo and dissatisfaction was because I intermingled those two words — happiness and joy — those two words have actually nothing, and I mean really nothing to do with each other.
