Once you become aware of the world around you, you realize that everything in it is completely and equally unique. Everything that we will encounter in this lifetime has never been before and will never be again. You can see this in how every line runs its own course, whether it is the line that is the Alps or the line that is the edge of a leaf. The line that is our life is like this too. What makes our life unique is where we fall down and where we rise up again. That’s what makes our line so special, because no one else can get up where we have fallen down. Only we can.
Life seems to come at us all at once. We form a self, get a few priorities together, and come out swinging. Many of the critical details are missing and time is always short. In a best-case scenario we are a work in progress on a speeding train. In the worst case that train is headed nowhere fast. We are born into as many forms of suffering as there are stars in the sky and still we do the best we can with what we have.
maybe if I could reassure you- yes, maybe then….
inquiry for today~ allow yourself a little peace….a little room….a little messy business of not being ok now and then…..
My belief is in the blood and flesh as being wiser than the intellect. The body-unconscious is where life bubbles up in us. It is how we know that we are alive, alive to the depths of our souls and in touch somewhere with the vivid reaches of the cosmos.
