“Crying is one of the highest devotional songs. One who knows crying, knows spiritual practice. If you can cry with a pure heart, nothing else compares to such a prayer. Crying includes all the principles of Yoga.”
Dearest Yoga Students,
Hope you enjoy a good cry now and again. I have always been a crier. The tears just come and there is no holding them back. Not much has changed. I cry when I am happy, upset, mad, frustrated, full of love or simply when I become overwhelmed by the beauty and fragility of this life. Crying integrates a sense of presence like nothing else, it includes breath work, abdominal strengthening and has the ability to allow my emotions to flow like the tears the streaming down my face leaving me calm and relieved. I used to feel bad about the way I cried. Those around me would urge me to stop and stifle it, maybe due to their own uncomfortability. Today, I have embraced my ability to wear my emotional body out for the world to see. If I am in a situation where it is absolutely inappropriate to cry, I take a breath and promise myself a good cry the next chance I get. So allow yourself to cry. Cry for the world, cry for yourself, cry for all the amazing ups and downs, and cry for the deep, spiritual love you feel when you witness the sacred beauty all around you.
