Personal practice: Permission to FEEL

Freedom and feeling are imperfect and messy and juicy and intense and subtle. No matter whether you want to feel goofy or balancing on one limb and still, step into it with a playful, open, willing nature.

Joy and pain: a practice

I am at a loss with your losses.
All I have is my presence and willingness to feel the loss with you without getting lost.

Good morning voicing

Said good morning out loud to the only other person on the river trail this morning. Hesitation. He will see me. I will see him. But he already sees me. What does it mean to be heard? Good morning. How will it be received? Do I whisper it? Do I keep it in my head?
