Seasonal Changes

Post by garudha » Thu Oct 01, 2015 7:02 pm

Dear reader,

This is my brief note on how things are at eleven months in.

I suppose I'm in this situation because things are in motion and in this motion; things will necessarily happen.
I tell myself that "it's only a natural process" and, I feel, an event would certainly be a relief.
It seems like the weight of the world is on my shoulders.
And to remain silent is lonely.
Yet, I have, on occasions "let go" of this weight, and what other communication -except allowing others their freedom, and divine gracefulness- is needed?
So although I complain; I do know that I the weight and isolation is like baggage I carry.

My time is short and I feel like something is yet to be accomplished.
To not know if it-is, or is-not, ones destiny to accomplish an unknown is rather bizarre.

update:

The "something" presented itself to be accomplished.

I shrunk from the challenge.

After, whilst turning the situation over and over in my mind, the feeling of "broken poetry" was immense.

Still... I'm still standing (which only adds to my confusion).

No one told me life would be like this!

There was no warning.

No warning that, in my exquisite ignorance, I ever noticed.

Keep going.

As a time of suffering will surely come around to me,
May I truly practice the sublime teachings."
