There are many reasons/perspectives to explain “whys”of our lives, the whys of our failures and successes.
But truly there is no why, only the way.
There is nowhere to run, there is nowhere to hide from the tender vulnerabilities that are the very fabric of our lives.
They tie us to the earth delicately with the weight of the universe.
No matter where we try to hide; drugs, alcohol, television, media, socialization, gossip, our work, our art, our thoughts, our friends, our identity, our position, our accomplishments, our beliefs, our rationalization…… in the end our tender vulnerabilities will always be waiting. They will be there at the very end.
They are our teachers, they are truth, the very hand of god.
It is simple: do not try to run, do not try to hide from that which is ever present. Your strength and weakness are sown together along a single seam, inseparable.
To be whole we must acknowledge and accept both aspects of our self, light and shadow.
Everything that arises is bound to pass away, the beginning defines the return.
