A Poem by David Whyte...
(Part one, click here)
The death of a Beloved life partner or any ‘broken Heart’ is trauma attached to love. While I am speaking to my experience after the death of my husband, many relationships end in trauma not associated with death. One partner ‘walking away’ can also create trauma. This trauma can contribute to post traumatic stress, or what I call Love Traumatic Stress.
For 4 hours I have been stretched out in a comfy recliner with a sleeping (sick) one year old on my chest.
The lights are low and classical music is playing.
I have been thinking about my life and some of the difficult places I struggle with. I will say doing so in this way... Encourages remarkable insight. Clear perspective.
I highly recommend: 'Sleeping sick baby asana' or aka: 'Baby's breath meditation'.
It will open your Heart-Wide... And you will hear your own gentle voice of Wisdom!
I love this sweet little boy (And he only has a snuffy nose, coughing bug... Not too bad!)
