What you are basically, deep, deep down, far, far in,
is simply the fabric and structure of existence itself.
stay the course for all that is unfolding….
inquiry for today~ memories are sweeter with a little grit…..
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.
