“Sit down before fact as a little child, be prepared to give up every preconceived notion, follow humbly wherever and to whatever abysses nature leads, or you shall learn nothing. I have only begun to learn content and peace of mind since I have resolved at all risks to do this.”
— Thomas Henry Huxley
How do I empty a cup too full
of life lived with questions?
How do I let go of disappointments
and belief in the lack of myself
when I have not been lacking
as much as my methods?
How do I give up
what I have known before
and surrender to each new moment
with openness and willingness to let go?
How do I let go of childhood falsehoods
daily stresses and concerns?
— G A Rosenberg
Thats the thing tho isn’t it? We can’t let go of something that is so shadowy as the things that clog our minds. It is only by giving them form and acknowledging what they are and how they didn’t work for us that we can even begin. The more we realize, the more we can encounter each new thing with openness. It doesn’t require letting go completely as much as the resolve to do so and not let our pasts (even the past of an hour ago) interfere with whatever we meet now.
