Compassion goes about finding the work that can be done. Love can’t help but stay present. ~Krista Tippett
when we let go of something, we first see all that we lose……and when we hold the hands of others, we forget ourselves completely….
inquiry for today~ how do we balance the felt senses with our deeper needs? how do you see that in the real relationship right in front of you?
My greatest fear is that I will pass away before my time,
only to exist long into the future in a dank fog of worries
and drowsy superficialities that grudgingly hold down by the throat
all the joys that surge to live in me from beneath the sadnesses
that I talk, talk, talk at rather than gather myself to sit before
when they have need to speak to me enduringly
of what I have forgotten to feel.
