Tears flow for many reasons. Sometimes it’s sorrow; sometimes it’s joy. So when are tears holy?
As we learn early in life, we develop caution as we start out doing what we love. Tricycles, then bikes with training wheels. There comes a point where those protective wheels keep us from doing what we know we can do and desperately want to do.
In our spiritual life, we realize that our ego protects us, but following what it dictates can also hold us hostage from who we want to be. As we grow more spiritually aware, we become able to benefit from the lessons from our ego without being a prisoner to its limitations.
Bates Reed shares how we experience the holy tears of joy in those moments of realization as we appreciate what the ego has taught us, and move beyond the warnings to transform into our highest self.
