Join Caverly on Sunday, June 23rd for a free, live webinar through Worldwide Insight, starting at 11:00am PST.

Caverly will offer a guided meditation, talk and discussion on the topic "Moving Beyond the Myth of Loneliness." 

What changes as we consciously turn toward our suffering, rather than away? We are conditioned to experience ourselves as separate from life. When we identify with this perceived separation, a natural byproduct is loneliness. In an attempt to resolve the angst created by that experience, to heal the wound, we are habituated to look externally. In that outward gaze, we often overlook an experience of belonging that is inherent.

In this habit of focusing outside ourselves, we tend to turn away, rather than toward, our pain. How does our habit of seeking shift when we recognize that what we long for can never actually be lost?

Your Doorway In

Dear one 
I see the pain 
in your heart —
the gaping wound 
that’s been covered 
with your good intention 
to move on, to be strong, 
to let go. 
Now 
in the stillness of the moment 
you are safe to move into it, 
to be with it, to turn toward 
rather than away. 
Trust 
that this pain 
will not break you. 
Trust
that this pain 
is made of the same love 
that you’ve most longed for. 
The wound is your doorway in.
