Growingoldest, my LJ mutual friend asks, "When do humans learn to cry tears of joy?"
It is a fascinating question as one realizes that we learn to cry tears of joy. My sense of it is that we first individuate, and then, when we re-connect, we begin to feel the joy of life, and that is when the moisture of the clouds begins to fill our eyes as we float through experience, and the elements change in us and we are aware of the change, in and out, earth, air, water, fire, space.
The deeper the sorrow we allow ourselves to feel, the deeper the canoe, or trench awaiting joy and then, the tears come, and the rainbows shine.
Life and time!!
Celebrate those tears of joy, the liquidity of love!
