I walked around the gardens, and picked up a fallen flower to hold close to my heart.
I ran down a path in darkness and silently shouted to the palm trees and sky, a promise and a blessing.
Tonight, at Bahji, I continued the process of letting go. Of people, of places, of expectations, of the labels and insecurities and confusing thoughts. And I reconstructed, strengthening ties and bonds and the pieces of spirit between all of us that hold us together. Letting go and holding on are not all that different, after all.
Be a true friend. Be loving and mindful of the tests that we are all going through. Be compassionate, firm, and joyful. Seek out justice. Continue to learn patience. Continue to learn everything.
This is a reminder to me, but also to you.
