For a long time, I didn’t cry. I won’t say that I couldn’t cry, but just that I didn’t cry. Well, alright, that’s not entirely accurate. The only things that made me well up with tears were movies and stories about people being able to find their own redemption.
For instance, Norma Rae, when she stands on the table with the “union” sign, I cry like a baby every time. Her standing up to the oppressor is such an act of courage and in a sense, redemption, that it touches me deeply.
I also cry when I see a marching band. I just love a parade. They get me every time. It’s the moving in unison. It’s the joining together for the purpose of making something beautiful. It touches my heart.
When I sang in the Agape International Choir, I used to cry while we sang all the time. I wasn’t the only one. I could look down the row and see others singing their heart out with tears running down their cheeks. We were singing our prayers of gratitude and rising up to Spirit. It was a beautiful and healing experience.
Many times, I knew that I was crying to release the stored sadness from a time when I thought I’d never get to the place of healing where I was in that moment. I am so grateful, SO VERY grateful, for the healing I’ve experienced, and that is why I must keep sharing that so much healing is possible for each of us.
If we’re willing and we choose it, healing is ours.
