No Longer Searching

Having loved enough and lost enough,
Iโ€™m no longer searching
just opening,

no longer trying to make sense of pain
but trying to be a soft and sturdy home
in which real things can land.

These are the irritations that rub into a pearl.*

~ Mark Nepo

 

Beyond searching is opening and acceptance of life and it’s irritations. There is hidden treasure there.

Namaste
