Third Gate of Grief: The Sorrows of the world

November 9 @ 15:00 - 17:00

Virtual Event Virtual Event

Dear one,

There’s a world of sorrow out there, isn’t there? The melting glaciers, the dying forests, the polluted oceans. Sometimes it feels like too much to bear. But what if I told you that your heartbreaking for the world is not just normal – it’s necessary?

Welcome to the Third Gate of Grief: The Sorrows of the World.

This gate invites us to feel the pain of our planet, our communities, and all living beings. It’s about recognizing that we’re not separate from the world around us. Your grief for the earth is a testament to your love, your connection, your belonging.

Remember when you were little, and you cried over a hurt animal or a fallen tree? That innocent, open-hearted child is still within you. This gate asks us to reconnect with that part of ourselves – the part that feels deeply and loves without hesitation.

It’s okay if this feels overwhelming. Take a deep breath. You’re safe here.

Feeling the sorrows of the world doesn’t mean you have to fix everything. It’s about being present, bearing witness. It’s about honoring the pain and letting it move through you. Like rain falling on parched earth, this grief can nourish your soul and spark compassion.

As you step into this gate, you might feel:

  • A deep ache for the beauty being lost
  • Anger at the destruction you see
  • Helplessness in the face of big problems
  • A renewed sense of connection to all life

All of these feelings are welcome. They’re signs of your humanity, your empathy, your aliveness.

By embracing this grief, you’re not just healing yourself – you’re participating in the healing of the world. Your tears are a form of activism. Your open heart is a revolutionary act in a world that often turns away.

So, dear one, I invite you to step gently into this gate. Feel the sorrow, yes, but also the love that underlies it. Let it remind you of your place in the great web of life. Let it inspire you to live with more reverence, more care, more joy in the precious moments we have.

You’re not alone in this. We’re all in it together, held in the great heart of the world.

Are you ready to open your heart to the sorrows – and the beauty – of our world?
