Emptiness Becomes Openness
Sometimes A Loss Can Be A Gain

When we lose anything that we cherish, the sense of emptiness we are left behind with can be overwhelming. A space that was filled, whether in our lives or our hearts, is now a void, and the feelings of pain, loss, and separation can sometimes be difficult to bear. While it is always important to honor what we´ve lost, sometimes a loss can also represent a chance for a new beginning. When we are ready, the void left by a relationship, a job, or a dream can then be viewed as open space that can be filled with something new: new experiences, new knowledge, new job opportunities, new dreams, new people, and new ways to grow.

There are many ways to weave the threads of loss into a blessing. If you´ve lost a job or ended a relationship, your first thoughts may revolve around filling the void with a similar job or the same kind of relationship. Try not to rush into anything just to fill up the emptiness. The loss of a job can free you up to explore new opportunities, especially if you´ve outgrown the old one. Likewise, the loss of a relationship can give you a chance to rediscover your own interests, explore new passions, and meet different people.

If seeking the good in what seems like a bad situation makes you feel uncomfortable, then try to remember that you are not devaluing what you´ve lost or replacing it cold-heartedly. You are surrendering to the fact that, in life, we sometimes have to let go and allow for what is new to enter into the open spaces created by our losses. In doing so, you are honoring what has left you and welcoming the new into your life with open space, an open mind, and an open heart.

Re: REFLECTION
Nice to see you, QH. I´ve missed the daily om and your Zen dialogs.

The passage relates directly in my life to the closure of my company next -- oh well, one more educational software developer startup bites the dust.

People around here are mournful, and look at me strangley when I tell them:

Doors close, windows open
Time for a new view of the world

Re: REFLECTION
Thank you QH! I think many of us needed to be reminded of this truth, myself included. It´s SO hard to let go in order to allow for new doors to open! And in letting go, we don´t forget those people or experiences, but we in effect bless them and change their "hold on us"! You think?

Re: REFLECTION
Man Op is killing it tonight..literally awakening minds and stuff
Big waves
I think this would be a good time to comment on op’s gender and sexuality
Because I am incapable of transcendence unless it’s at the expense of another because I am a lesser being
