a balmy day

What you are basically, deep, deep down, far, far in,

is simply the fabric and structure of existence itself.

~Alan Watts

stay the course for all that is unfolding….

inquiry for today~ memories are sweeter with a little grit…..

alight this life

In my very limited experience, insights like to stay hidden under a few layers of unpleasant wrapping paper.

They are like fruits covered with a thick, prickly and smelly skin. To get to the soft pulp,

I may have to relax and accept the painful covering and make it a part of me.

Asking a question, like “Why don’t I like my body?” or “Why am I always stressed?” helps me gently direct my focus.

When I’m on the verge of insight, I usually give up fighting the pain

and open myself up to becoming more and more vulnerable.
