I am no longer caught up in specificity–each drama is a variation on the same old theme–I am either avoiding pain by denying a story or in clinging to a storyline, I’m attaching to pain.
I know of no scenario that does not fit aversion or attachment. However, it is one thing to “categorize” a scenario, and it is another to let it go.
Regardless, I must move out of my individual story and into the waters of the open mind, feeling all that it is to be one human among many.
I open to you, your struggle; you to me and mine.
It is a gentle flow, time transcendent, our connection in compassion, like water flowing through rock.
Water gives life to the 10,000 things and does not strive…
Together, neither does either one of us.
