Those than can comprehend the nature of the emotions that are involved and the lessons being learnt ,so that you wont make those past mistakes will notice that a huge amount of negative energy can felt to be leaving the mindbody making you suddenly happier and lighter and more at peace with the world.
Yes, it can be like a good storm, clears the air and things settle down again. I don't cry very much and I think there is a danger of 'wallowing' but then even a good hour of wallowing is ok,I reckon, lets not be too hard on ourselves . But I think its best not to 'wallow' long if you go there.
When it comes upon me,I feel a need growing to explore it, get in touch with it. I deliberately then, choose a moment of quiet aloneness, put on some evocative music and go with it. Sometimes one can't quite get in touch with the feelings of sadness, but then it becomes clearer.
The spiritual bit is that often in this process, a deeper sense of wider perspective arises, much wider. An expansion, a looking into ones deep awareness and receiving a response, a response that just comes from who knows where, the Sunyata perhaps.
Usually at that point the weeping has stopped and a slight smile comes, and a big sigh, and then a good sleep and a new day, feeling much better.
