“In how you have come
Is the secret
To how you must go.”
Mark Nepo, The Book of Awakening
I’ve had this one book for years now and I just noticed- I am just getting- what the sentence on the front cover means-
“Having the life you want by being present to the life you have.”
It’s in my soul- my soul gets it… But I’m struggling to….. I can hear my soul saying it and I get it, but….
“The deeper the cry,
The more clear the choice.”
How did I misinterpret the word present to mean settle? How did grateful become settling, stopping? The question isn’t, am I present, or how present am I? The better question is,
to what am I present to?
