Week 17 1/2 Master Key

Standard

I am continuing to be amazed at how deeply these so-called little exercises that we do go.  Two collided this week – “giving myself permission to be happy”, and “what am I pretending not to know?”.  I had been feeling depressed for a week or more – which is uncommon for me.  I attributed it to external circumstances, but really, I usually bounce back pretty well.  The other night I sat down before I went to bed with the permission thing and the question.  “I give myself permission to be happy”, and then “what am I pretending not to know”.  What came up is “I don’t have permission to be happy when so many people are suffering/have suffered”.  Blindsided with this one!  I went in, found the vow I made way-back-when to take on others’ suffering, and released it.  The next morning I woke up singing, the depression gone like a morning mist.  Happiness has to be unconditional, and, it benefits everyone.  Moving on.  What an adventure!
