When the intensity of the earthly experience strikes you, soften into the embrace of the unbearable.
When the unexpected brings you to your knees, bow down all the way and be thankful for the hidden gift.
When your heart is ripped open by the agony of existence, open even wider than that.
When you are lost, alone, gripped by fear … rest here, my friend, just for a moment. Rest here, in this desolate beauty without meaning. Rest here, for the sake of rest, and nothing else.
