Making Room

This quote came to me a few days ago from my friend, Mags (oh, wise one). It's from Pe.ma Chod.ron, if anyone is familiar with her teachings... Right now it is one of the things (besides the arms of Tidy and the love of my friends) that is giving me comfort.

"Things falling apart is a kind of testing and also a kind of healing. We think that the point is to pass the test or to overcome the problem, but the truth is that things don’t really get solved. They come together and they fall apart. Then they come together again and fall apart again. It’s just like that. The healing comes from letting there be room for all of this to happen: room for grief, for relief, for misery, for joy."

Hope this brings some of you who are grieving some peace as well.

There's a Rumi quote which I'm fond of as well - it echoes similar sentiments.

"Don't turn your head.

Keep looking at the bandaged place.

That's where the Light enters you."

I am so sorry. Sending you hugs and peace and love.
