Realization means making real. In other words, it is a direct, immediate immersion into things as they absolutely are: no preconceptions, no interpretations, no judgment. It is oneself becoming true…..Gerald May
post-modern everything hurts a little…..like we forgot that we have rocks in our shoes….there’s a purity of heart that cannot be denied….we get attached and blame and forget……it’s ok….we don’t need an endless story around it……no excuses….human connection is all that is needed….
What this means in a daily way is that we show up with all of our care, and then let go of our attachments to what might come of our care. In other words, we can’t know what is real unless we face what comes our way with our hearts in our mouths, risking everything. Something magical opens when we risk who we are. But, despite our dreams and expectations, the outcome of such an offering is frequently different from what we hope for. And so we are asked to detach and reflect on the truth of our actual experience, in order to understand the lessons we are being given……..Mark Nepo
Happiness cannot be found
Through great effort and willpower,
But is already present in relaxation and letting go.
