you just never know.  what the pluses or minuses of letting go might be.  what way you might limit yourself by holding on.  it’s all a mystery.

the arnson-goodbye [k.s. friday]

hatetosaygoodbyeSONGBOX

the “arnson-goodbye” is infamous.  it is an endless loop that strays as far away from “goodbye” as possible.  on the phone, standing by the side of the car in the driveway, at the dorm room door, next to the apartment building in boston or a place in the high colorado mountains, the goodbye just goes on and on.  the conversation ebbs and swells, the tide of “the leave” determined by how long it will be till “the next time.”  i really can’t be blamed, so i hope my children are reading this.  it has been passed down through generations; we are all dna-driven to have this longgggg goodbye, this aversion to actually DO-ing it:  leaving.

yup.  i truly do hate to say goodbye.  i come by it honestly.  so, now you get my thready-ness, yes?

LAYERED MEDITATION

president jimmy carter was being interviewed by stephen colbert on the late showstephen asked him (words to the effect) how he could love all people.  president carter, absolutely sweet at “almost-94”, responded he “let go of the animosities he had cherished.”  wow.  although there were many moments in the interview that reinforced the respect i have for this man as a positive force in the world, this one really struck me.  -let go of the animosities you cherish-

for who among us can not relate to that?  how tightly do we hold to those things?  and how do they prevent us from living right now?  life is layered and our history and everything, from small slights to life-changing wrongs that others have done to us or our loved ones to -worse yet- all of our own wrongdoing, piles up like dark layers of sedimentary rock.  weathering, weathering, weathering.  how can we possibly be zen in all that?

president carter also said that he “forgets about them”…the people who have caused him undue pain or stress, who have been perhaps, i think, a dark layer of sedimentation in his life.  now, at almost-94, my own sweet momma would have agreed with him.  he reminded me of her.  two peas in a pod.  leading with kindness and generosity.  forgetting about the rest in all the ways that forgetting is a good thing.  who really has room in their life to hang onto all that and still make headway toward goodness?

from david’s painting MEDITATION, this morsel of painting – called LAYERED MEDITATION – makes me think of these layers of sediment, layers of life.  the darkness on the bottom -not necessarily because it is buried but because it is overruled by other layers- the fire of passion and earth-life in the middle and the effervescence of light on the top.  sedimentary layers of life.  a picture of letting go, of transforming dark into light.  a layered meditation.
