It is either going or coming, or going and coming at the same time. This is the flow of life. My choice is to be going and coming at once. Staying and leaving, living to this and dying to that, being one with the moment as momentary as a moment can be, alive to it all, at one with it all, enraptured by it all, embracing everything, holding onto nothing, hello and good-bye in a single greeting, life as it is and will be for as long as life is possible. Consciousness is the trick. Mindfulness does the work. Knowing knows everything instantaneously, accepts everything-- even the rejection of it all-- saying yes to no, and letting it be because it is. It is called walking on water, riding the waves, swimming joyfully in the churning turmoil of the wine-dark sea, having the time of our life, here and now, no matter what, why not? It only takes seeing/accepting to make it so, in a "This is the way things are, and this is what we can do about it, and that's that," kind of way. This becomes possible without emotional attachment or abhorrence to any outcome, just seeing, just knowing, just acknowledging, just being with how things are and also are, moment to moment, doing what is needed and letting that be that, letting things unfold as they will, no matter what it may mean-- no matter what it means, it means seeing what's what, knowing what is called for and doing what needs to be done here/now again and again and again throughout time. The Sisyphean Task through the ages. Enjoying what is to be enjoyed, and doing what is to be done, anyway, nevertheless, even so.
