what lies ahead

And now let us believe in a long year that is given to us,

new, untouched, full of things that have never been.

~Rilke

there is a spaciousness born of being ok….

inquiry for today~ you may never know truth without untruths…..

forgotten endings

The invitation to begin again (and again and again) that meditation affords is an invitation for the practice of self-compassion — to heal through letting go rather than harming ourselves with cycles of self-doubt, judgment, and criticism. Beginning again is a powerful form of resilience training.

Each time we become distracted or lost in our judgments, assumptions, and other thoughts, we can return to the moment, the most portable and dependable resource at our disposal. We see that no matter what, we can always begin again.
