Tears Are The Cleanse of Your Soul

Have you ever been told not to cry or else you would get beat more or that you were too sensitive when you cried?


Have you ever judged yourself thinking there’s something wrong with you when you cried?


Have you ever wanted to cry but couldn’t or just cried silently the so-called ‘inner crying’ for fear of being judged and wronged?


How many of you were taught that it’s weak to cry in the societies, especially for men?


How many of you were taught to suck it up, macho up and march on to be positive and strong?


How many of you ended up no longer feeling how you felt, completely out of touch with your bodies and not being able to speak up when you wanted to speak?


I used to laugh all the time many yeas ago thinking I was so happy and loveable to all people


Even when someone shared their sad news, I just laughed it off not knowing what to say when I meant to feel for them, then got angry at myself wondering why I couldn’t respond appropriately


Laughing things off became my automatic coping mechanism to cover up all pain


That was how out of touch I was with me


I have found myself being able to feel deeply and cry since I started to heal myself


What I wasn’t willing or able to feel in the past


What if there is nothing wrong with crying?


What if tears are what get you


To feel and express your own pain


For your self-healing


So you can feel others’ pain and


Allow them to be


For their self-healing?


What if tears are what give you


Even more strength and courage


To keep going and move forward


For total receiving and allowance of you


Rather than just shoving them down


Withering and dying inside?


What if when someone or a man cries,


That very vulnerability is


The most courageous and


Beautiful thing about them


That we have the honor


To witness and hold space for?


What if tears get you


To connect with yourself and others


From heart to heart, soul to soul


Beyond the capabilities of your head


When something about them


Deeply touches your heart and soul?


What if tears are what remind us


This is what it feels like to be human?


To be heart-centred


To be compassionate


To be kind


To be gentle


What if tears are the sacred healing water


The gift from God


That you are created to be


To cleanse your soul?


Allow them to shed and drop


No matter who you are


What you are in this world


For the rainbow and


Bright, magnificent light


Of your soul


To shine again


You are loving


You are caring


You are strong


You are courageous


You are authentic


With your tears and vulnerability


You are infinite awareness


Regardless of your tears and vulnerability


As an infinite being you are created to be


You got this. One step at a time.
