SITTING WITH LIFE







Sweet Alice,
Many minutes, hours, days, weeks and months between us right now. As life would have it,  that is just the way things have been recently. And Grampa just has to sit with that. 
If we wanted to look at this thought from a spiritual perspective, it’s the spiritual discipline acceptance. Dealing with what unfolds in one’s life, instead of always trying to control everything. This may, at first, feel like a passive stance – just accepting- but learning the upaya (skillful means) of acceptance can become a very valuable spiritual tool because there is so much we don’t have control over anyway. 
Sitting with just what is…
No judgments
No opinions
No good
No bad
Just this
Something to ponder in your journey.
Love Grampa
