I so look forward to our visit from Joel at Rising Light Sangha. So many questions I want to ask, things to discuss! Meanwhile, I want to share a little quotation which, in my opinion, speaks to the wisdom of letting go of our clinging to resentments and perceived slights, our regrets, our excuses and explanations of our perceived limitations. They are just the stories we invent about why we aren't somehow "different" or "better" than we are.
"There is something beautiful about all scars of whatever nature. A scar means the hurt is over, the wound is closed and healed, done with." -Harry Crews, novelist and playwright (b. 1935)
