Why Crying Can Heal Your Soul

These teardrops that fall... are gently detoxifying me — slowly taking out what I had absorbed in the past, that is no longer good for my soul now. - Crying, heal the soul

“It opens the lungs, washes the countenance, exercises the eyes, and softens down the temper; so cry away.”
Charles Dickens, 1812 – 1870, Writer, Victorian Novelist

When we are crying, something beautiful is happening…

We may have been acquainted with a flower of youthful hope and wonder some time in the past.

As we see her, today,

with thorns in our way,

she has withered away.

It is time to let her fly away. 

The hope that was then, was for then, and now, is for new hope to be found.

Shed the tears, let all of what that is hurting us inside, dissipate.

Recollect. Recover. Renew.

The path of my travel toward a deeper life started with the road to self-discovery when I realized that the only way to experience my dreams as reality was to take personal ownership. I write, as well as read, to engage with you - to encourage us to live deeply.
