It’s not a bad thing. It just “is,” in the tradition of wise speaker and workshop guru Byron Katie.
The tears flow easily down my cheeks when I’m trying to get to sleep or are just waking. In between the worlds. Transition.
The most clear and profound instance was one evening as I was reading about the heart, how it works. It was an online site aimed at children. More easily understood. With no warning it hit me – truly and beyond reason – how amazing our heart system is.
Without attention (unless something goes wrong). Without thanks. The heart beats on an incredible number of times in one life.
These are what I call pure tears–not from sadness or distress, not joy or bliss. Tears of amazement.
