If It Be Your Will

 
Judith Orloff - Tuesday, June 09, 2009

Adapted from Dr. Judith Orloff’s NY Times bestseller “Emotional Freedom: Liberate Yourself From Negative Emotions and Transform Your Life” (Three Rivers Press, 2011)

Dear Ones,

Emotional Freedom is about trusting the flow of life, trusting, trusting, trusting. When I meet resistance in myself, when I push too hard, when my desires overcome my intuition, this Leonard Cohen song  "If It Be Your Will" realigns me. It softens all that is rigid in me and I can breathe into the flow again. Hope you enjoy it.

Peace and love,
Judith

A passage in “Emotional Freedom” that addresses clenching versus flow and what to do when things aren't happening on your time table is in Chapter 7 Facing Frustration, Building Patience on Page 183.

Thanks for posting this, Judith. It's very soothing and uplifting. Just what I needed as I'm home sick.

Beautiful.....and unexpected. I clicked, expecting a short message of some type -- not soothing music with a message. Wow! Now, how do I forward this to my friends?

A great song, but the lady in the background should not have been singing. Leonard Cohen has the sexiest voice I have ever heard, but he needs to sing by himself. I am sorry that he is not making any more songs. I am getting all the songs and albums he ever came out with. Thank you Leonard Cohen.
