How often do we feel lost or empty when some tragedy crashes into our lives? The first reactions, more violent and raw, go by quickly and we are left with a void, a new incomprehensible structure under our feet that makes us feel insecure. We then focus on hiding that void with whatever noises we can find or create; we stubbornly focus on the negative emotions that fluctuate within us in a labyrinth we can´t escape.
What if instead we looked beyond? Beyond that pain, that sadness or desperation; beyond that lack of meaning and eagerness for answers we cannot get… yet. We could see the draft of something bigger, the timid sparkle of a future light that will illuminate our presents sorrows. But only if we allow ourselves to feel in each moment, to be present and patient, and battle thought grief and confusion.
