Being Thankful For Sorrow


Allowing oneself to feel sorrow or any other negative feeling (owning the sorrow) without judging that emotion is OK. This is what the tonglen slogan “Drive all blames into one, ” means. Sorrow and joy are opportunities for growth, and we should be thankful for both.

In his website, heaven4earth, Mario d’Elena has a post called, simply, “Thank You.” It expresses this very well.
