-Tom Robbins, "Now Showing: Satori"
This is a beautiful teaching that illustrates how close—if not inseparable—disparate things actually are. There are aspects of my life that seem remotely different, like the city and the country, work life and yoga life, the confines of the subway versus the open air of the park. I dwell on these. I celebrate their differences as a way to pat myself on the back and acknowledge the breadth of my life. Is it that way, though, truly? Aren't all things, without the colorings of my memory, perception and hopes, all very much the same by nature?
May it be so. If not, may I believe it.
