“There’s a spiritual component to Kindfulness. Trusting in a child within, or in even in ourself, that whatever the answer is, I’ll be OK, practicing death, surrendering.

Letting go of control unearths our most primal fear: death.

“What do I really want? I want a lot of things. If I say yes to this one thing, I say no to all the others. It’s a sacrifice to make a decision. It’s a death,”

We consistently underestimate our capacity to suffer, heal and grow, so we grasp more tightly. Yet the very experience we stifle is the one that’s longing to emerge. Ultimately, we need to loosen our grip.

Spiritual traditions share stories of waiting, sitting in the tension of life with compassion and inquiry while wrestling with the dualities of joy and sorrow, birth and death, humanity and divinity.

Prophets step into a life of discernment, leaving behind daily reminders of their individual identity such as wealth, family and a schedule. (Unlike them, we tend to hold onto these things dearly.) They live out “the hero’s journey,” along with all the suffering, bliss and renewal that comes with it.

As we can see within these stories, Kindfulness isn’t an interruption of life, nor is it a mistake asking to be fixed. It holds within it the potential for growth, if we allow it to. It can be a creative energy that rouses us to awaken and integrate. Sometimes, it involves coming to terms with difficult discoveries or decisions.

Does this sound weak? Not at all. But it sounds hard.

However, sometimes letting go can mean coming undone so that we can become more fully ourselves, and the way the opportunity to do so shows up in our lives is uniquely and beautifully specific to every one of us thats the beauty of loving in the kindful.
