‘The healing is in the return’ – Sharon Salzberg

We all have moments where we break a promise we’ve made to ourselves, whether it be fairly innocuous or fundamentally life-shattering. We seem to have a sense of the most righteous path of action, an inner guide that points us towards the best version of ourselves, one that at times we diligently follow and at others we silence in the pursuit of hedonism, distraction or ease.

That’s why I love the Sharon Salzberg quote ‘the healing is in the return’. It is in the moments where we realise what we have lost or where we have strayed, that we reconnect with what’s important to us and where we should be. Once we have made this realisation, shame and guilt no longer serve us, except as a drive towards reconciliation.

It can be easy to damn ourselves for the wrong turns or regretful parts of life but I think it’s far more meaningful to see them as necessary steps to a fuller understanding of the human experience. It is through the hardships and consequences that we so often learn gratitude, discipline, resilience and non-judgement.

When we have strayed it can be easy to feel lost, but I think it’s reassuring to consider all the deviations and detours in life as necessary steps on our way back to the path.

I think this path represents different things to each individual but I think often it comprises some element of connection, whether that be to other people, to our creativity or to our more authentic self. I believe the path of gold involves joy and bliss but also responsibility, reliability and compassion. It is a constant balance between being true to ourselves whilst taking care of others.

None of us will ever walk this path without meanderings and tributaries but still it awaits us patiently and without judgement, until we’re ready to rejoin.
