From May-August of 2021, I cried more than I ever have in my life. I cried daily, I had cries of pain from grief and losses. My heart and soul were suffering. When I went on my healing journey and attended The Potters House church in Dallas Texas, I cried the entire service. If my mask could talk, it held every tear that fell. It was soaking wet. There’s an idea, someone needs to invent a waterproof mask.
I have often questioned why I cried so much that day and during that period in my life. Today, I know that I was transitioning. I was transitioning from my old world of suffering, loss, and grief to my new world of awakening.
The reason we cry is that we are moving into another dimension. A baby cries when he is born. When he is moving from the womb to the world he is moving into a new dimension. If the baby doesn’t cry then everyone gets nervous. The baby suffers passing through the womb, the pulling, the forceps, the mom pushing the newborn out. It’s hard, it’s labor, it’s suffering. But as soon as the baby is out and he is in his new dimension, he cries. The awakening is in the suffering.
Society doesn’t want us to suffer. They want us to extinguish the pain. We are addicted to being pain-free. Let me say it again, we are addicted to being pain-free. We have more substance to kill pain than ever before in my lifetime. When I was a child, we had Joseph’s children’s aspirin, Bayer aspirin, and Goody’s powders. Today we do not have sections of over-the-counter pain medicine, we have aisles. Opioid addiction is the number one killer in this country. It’s more than war and car accidents. Liquor stores have gone from mom-and-pop locally owned stores to megastores. Weed is legal or a misdemeanor in most states. Obesity is a sign that we are eating our feelings. We are losing the war on drugs every single day.
I understand wanting to be pain-free. I extinguished my pain for decades. Extinguishing pain through substance, food, sex, shopping, or whatever your vice is, is not getting you to the next dimension. We cannot awaken when we numb the suffering. We must feel the pain, the grief, and snuggle with our demons to go to the next level in our life. And crying is part of going into the next dimension.
Your destiny is in your tears. Let it go! Stuffing your suffering is only prolonging your next dimension. You may cry for a day, a week, a month, or months but when it’s over, get ready. Get ready for your awakening and get ready for your next dimension. I don’t know who needs to hear this or read this but I pray you to receive it and cry your way to your awakening, to your freedom, and to the next dimension that is waiting for you.
