So I've been trying to meditate lightly this evening. Favourite incense. Cool, quiet, dark room. Piano music.

I keep crying.

I know what it is. My "eagle" going away and my emotional self bubbling up. Scared. Tired. Not worried though. My therapist would be totally cool with it.

I'm still finding it so difficult to smoothly transition from my observant, cognitive self to my emotional self. It's jarring. Trying times.


PS: by explaining this on the Internet, I'm being very eagle-y and cognitive. The irony isn't lost on me. Defence mechanisms are such fun.
