Tenderness for being awake…
‘Each of these separations – – teaching before learning, leaving before staying, anticipating rather than entering – – left me drained of my deepest resource, the energy of my life force. Removing myself, even from pain, only left me pale and unable to continue.
When needle or hand or rain or sun hits the skin, the only thing to do is meet its exact touch from the inside. For this moment of inner meeting outer releases an electricity of spirit that gifts us with a tenderness for being awake.’
