A Return To Our Essential Experience

Standard

Through our weeping, May we wash away our desires and return to what is truly essential.

And so it may be as we navigate this time of uncertainty and unknowing that our acceptance of our weakness  illuminates the path to strength and resilience. As we accept the suffering of our individual and collective experience, we enter a way of knowing that comes not from security and control but rather, from opening to what happens and awaiting new life and the sacred journey of transformation. Experience teaches us that this is a day by day process. Our experience guides us into a real return to the essential truth of suffering.

May we enter our experience bearing what is ours to bear, and surrendering what we cannot bear to the divine wisdom of our Source.

Well of Grief          David Whyte

Those who will not slip beneath

the still surface on the well of grief

turning downward through its black water

to the place we cannot breathe

will never know the source from which we drink,

the secret water, cold and clear,

nor find in the darkness glimmering

the small round coins

thrown by those who wished for something else.
