to be felt and then released
Feelings must be processed. Felt and passed through. The word ‘processed’ being the operative word. Grief is a good example. It is natural to feel the loss of a loved one in a physical way. But if the feelings are not processed then the genuine sense of loss can be unhelpfully morphed into self-pity, which has very little to do with the loss. In fact if the loved one could speak from beyond the veil. They would be unhappy that we were unhappy. They would urge, I am sure, that we, live life, for it is all too short.
