We’re here together, witnessing this moment in the dark, united by pain and fear. Step by step, we discover this life and ourselves together.
Our children grow and say goodbye. Things change dramatically from one moment to the next, as we’re confronted with the impermanent nature of our lives.
It’s easy to think this isn’t how it’s supposed to be. And yet it is how it is … and therefore, must be also how it’s meant to be. How else could it be?
We’re all living in a closet of some kind; the place we hide all the messy stuff of life so the house looks clean when the neighbors come for a visit.
As we practice letting go and being okay – breathing, accepting, allowing – we find peace waiting gently, curled up at our feet, where it’s been all along.
Beyond all the goals, resolutions, and plans for the future, you — just as you are today — are worthy of love and acceptance.
