Emotional Rain - Grasshopper

I can probably count the times I’ve uncontrollably cried as an adult on the fingers of one hand. I find that sad.

My best guess it’s because of conditioning, not wiring. The era I grew up in, men didn’t cry, or if they did, they did it in private and didn’t talk about it. Equally sad.

 

I’m more easily brought to tears as I’ve grown older. It’s been a godsend. My emotional rain washes away pain and I watch my sorrows go down the drain.

 

I’ve always been impressed by actors who can cry on cue. It shows me they can dig deep into their reservoir of emotions, something I avoided too many years to count.

 

Reminds me of a story . . . I used to listen to my older sister’s records as a kid. There was one called “Cry” by a singer named Johnnie Ray. I remember the lyrics ‘til this day.

 

“If your sweetheart sends a letter of goodbye, it’s no secret you’ll feel better if you cry.” Later on in the song he sings, “Remember, sunshine can be found behind a cloudy sky, so let your head down and go on and cry.”

 

I find that crying washes away the sorrowful thoughts in your mind, at least for a time. It’s nature’s way of clearing the skies and brightening your day.

 

If tears are foreign to you, as they were to me, I suggest that you learn a new practice: allowing yourself the freedom to cry. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain, when you discover the healing powers of emotional rain.

 

All the best,

John
