WHERE SPIRITUALITY MEETS OUR VULNERABLE HUMANITY… 

Jeff Foster, with humour and compassion, speaks simply and directly about non-duality, emotional healing and awakening… and finding the sacred in the ordinary. 

“Thoughts and feelings are not mistakes, and they are not asking to be HEALED. They are asking to be HELD, here, now, lightly, in the loving arms of present awareness…”

THE LONGING THAT CALLS YOU HOME

You don't need to go 'beyond' suffering.
Suffering has no interest in 'beyond'.

It needs a lot more heart than that.
(Only the mind dreams of a 'beyond').

Suffering longs for your curiosity. Your kind attention.
Your breath. Your tears and your trembling.

It wants a mother, a father.
It is an orphan.

It wants all of you, not half.
It wants you to come closer. It wants you to enter.

And be curious. And step out of conclusions.
And touch a moment. Touch a moment without bias.

Touch into anger. Touch into sorrow.
Touch into terror. Touch into your
unwillingness to touch into
your suffering.

Touch the untouchable parts.
Not all at once. Not all today.
Just a moment at a time.
A moment. And then, survive it.
And breathe. And a moment.
And, survive it. And breathe.

Even the most painful feelings.
The most profound despair.
The sharpest grief.
The deepest feelings of unworthiness.

The parts that cry, "We are bad".

Survivable. Tolerable.
Bearable. For a moment.
And then, maybe acceptable.
And then, maybe embraceable.
And then, maybe, even loveable.

Not parts of you to destroy.
But parts of you to care for.

Parts longing to be included.
Disowned parts, seeking the Light.
Orphans of the Light.
Refugees for the Light.

You don't need to go 'beyond' suffering.
There is no 'beyond' for the heart.

For the heart is pure Presence.
And the way through suffering
is through suffering,
through and only through.

And the 'beyond' is really the immanent in disguise,
and the sacredness is in the ache itself,
and the transcendent is in
the fucking mud and the dirt and the blood.

And you are whole even when you do not feel whole.

And your suffering is your nostalgia,
the powerful longing that calls you home.

- Jeff Foster
