At the same time that I might wonder at the beauty of the world I live in, sometimes a dark corner grows. Most of the time I ignore it or I make up another story about it to make it fit with the view of the world I want to have. I just don’t want to see what is…I will go to great lengths to avoid the simplicity of reality. So what is the one thing I don’t want to talk about? What do I not want to hear about? What do I want to run from with Rose, with you, with work, with me? What is that thing? Ask that, look at that, get help with that very thing. Say it. When I do that I get to make choices and I get the relief of knowing (in all of me) what the truth is. I will still have blind spots and places where a little more light needs to shine. Enlightenment (to me) is not the sudden, bright light filling the whole sky; it is the process of seeing the small, dawning light emerging where there was a shadow just a second ago.
