This is no joke, this seeing; This seeing of patterns of habits of coverups of selfishness of internal compromises of dishonesty of not honoring inner truth We know about this shedding of ego-based existence, But this morning I heard the phrase, “Say Goodbye,” and felt its implications This is not a game to attain something to accomplish a task of some kind to achieve a spiritual milestone or to look good in our own eyes or the eyes of others. This is an annihilation of who we think we are; and to face that, well, humbling doesn’t even begin to say it. But it is humbling, and fearsome, and tender, and in this we are most vulnerable; As what we used to do to cover all that up no longer serves. For those of us who have somehow found ourselves in this process of unbecoming, My deepest respect goes out to us all; This is indeed not for the faint of heart. We can tend to overlook the courage this takes but I will overlook it no longer. Tears are never far away, melting my pretenses. Let the unraveling continue.
