Sitting, loving what is, I am not entirely convinced. Circling, before the dive in. The deep dive in. The lived life, the examined life. If you want reality to be different than it is, she laughs, you might as well teach a cat to bark. It then comes to me. The world is larger because of this. When you walk into a room and everyone agrees on something, you know that someone is hiding something or there is something you don't see. We don't need prophets for telling the future, because they are trying to change the present, he says. With this, like the poet says, the coating of dead dust falls from the windows. The old ways of seeing - habits really - are broken. We walk along the seafront, the meadowing path breathes with wildlife. The unexamined stories are airlifted away by butterflies and the thought of what the wise woman said: you are the one that can end your suffering. Sitting still, loving the world as it is, making friends with the wind.
Inspired by John O’Donohue, Byron Katie, Omar Ghobash and Shane Claiborne.
