Warrior’s Cry

June 7, 2012

“Going beyond fear begins when we examine our fear: our anxiety, nervousness, concern and restlessness.  If we look into our fear, if we look beneath the veneer, the first thing we find is sadness, beneath the nervousness.  Nervousness is cranking up, vibrating all the time.  When we slow down, when we relax with our fear, we find sadness, which is calm and gentle.  Sadness hits you in your heart, and your body produces a tear.  Before you cry, there is a feeling in your chest and then, after that, you produce tears in your eyes.  You are about to produce rain or a waterfall in your eyes and you feel sad and lonely and perhaps romantic at the same time.  That is the first tip of fearlessness, and the first sign of real warriorship.  You might think that, when you experience fearlessness, you will hear the opening to Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony or see a great explosion in the sky, but it doesn’t happen that way.  Discovering fearlessness comes from working with the softness of the human heart.”  Chogyam Trungpa

My Warrior’s Cry for Today:

I cry from Physical Pain.

I cry for feeling Fearful of my body.

I cry for my Inability to cry.

I cry in Frustration of feeling paralyzed and unable to communicate these feelings.

I cry for Freedom.

I cry in Gratitude for such Freedom.

I cry in Gratitude of the Sweetness of the Love of a Great Man.

I cry in Gratitude of the Kindness of old and new Friends.

I cry in Gratitude of the Answers to my Cry for Help.

I cry in Gratitude of Each Blessing, Each Sweet Soul, and Each Opportunity to Give.
