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.
