How do we live with the tension of desire? What do we do about the poison of possessing? Can we find satisfaction in dissatisfaction?
Problems are not the problem. We are the problem. But in that discomforting reality also lies the truth that if we are part of the problem we are part of the solution.
The pedestal cannot provide what we seek. It’s too small, too impermanent. It doesn’t hold the power we think it does. It’s never enough.
Are you growing too large for the room you’re in? Are you feeling confined? Maybe you’re really comfortable with the familiarity of this room but you’re curious about the door and what’s on the other side. Consider taking a step across that threshold, through the invitation of an open door.
Can you let go of what you know, what you’ve been taught is the predetermined answer, in the hopes and expectation that what could be true, the unexpected math, might actually be better?
