How We Roll

We can only learn and advance with contradictions. The faithful inside should meet the doubtful. The doubtful should meet the faithful. Human slowly advances and becomes mature when he accepts his contradictions.

From Oriah Mountain Dreamer

“Years ago I heard someone quote the Zen master Suzuki Roshi as saying, ‘We don’t need to learn to let go. We just need to recognize what is already gone.’ This is the reality we must face in every moment: the reality of impermanence, the reality of continual change, the reality of loss as part of a human life and the reality of our own mortality. No two moments of ‘now’ are same. It’s not that we lack the ability to be present. It is that we move away from the present moment in our desire to deny or at least minimize the experience of change and loss that is life. In our war with the reality of impermanence we move away from the our own experience in this moment and so loose access to that which can take us to the essential and infinite stillness within that sustains us even when those losses are painful.” ~Oriah Mountain Dreamer from The Call May we be with the present moment today- with its losses and blossoming, its joys and sorrows- letting our connection to what is sustain us with each breath.
