Always another change in life
« on: August 16, 2018, 06:37:35 am »
My daughter, an easy person to live with and a kind woman is leaving for college today. We have helped her pack her things, and today I load them and we take the long drive to her dorm. She is moving in with a person she is close to and now things change...which is always inevitable.  I stay mostly in the moment and I have reflected on this but there are many internal things which rise and fall.  Several of you have done this I am sure, and the suffering of change and of craving and of attachment is well known by all I am certain. If any of you have scripture, thoughts on your approach to such things, or experiences which you would like to share that have a perspective...I would like to read them if you wish to share. Thank you.

Thank you, and no need for the apology:) It was an interesting couple of days, but I looked at my thoughts and feelings deeply and everything is fine. I cried, but this was okay it showed me the depth of my feelings and my thoughts darkened but this was okay because it showed me I have more work to do to make understanding more reactive. Nothing lasts forever, conditions and circumstances change and only transience is permanent in the subjective sense of life. I found many misuses of love in my perception, my mind struggles to convince me that love can be lost, a false notion to be sure, but surprisingly pervasive even though i was already pretty sure i knew this it gets pretty subtle :). I am fine though and yes, I am exited for her adventure and would like to live long enough to see a good bit of where it leads before I go.
