Earnest, striving

"I have come into the world to experience this: to be so true to Love I would rather die than speak an unkind word." (Hafiz, paraphrased) It is a worthy thing to strive for, right? I strive to be kind—kindness as an action, not just a thought or a theory. What else can soften the pain of samsara? Oh! Wine! Hmmm. I have never had a kindness hangover. “Ugh. I was too kind last night. Now I have a headache.”

I had an irreverent, wise, funny friend who used to say, “We are born alone and we die alone. That doesn’t mean we can’t spend every moment in between fighting to connect with others.” So yeah. That. Connection. Rumi said it this way: "If our hearts don't hold a lantern, we will stumble over each other." I strive to hold a lantern in my heart so I will not stumble over those who cross my path.

I strive to speak honestly and to be open. I am stupidly earnest. I am always wanting to have earnest conversations about feelings and nature and spirituality and poetry. (I am crazy in love with poetry. "Bring me my bow of burning gold! Bring me my arrows of desire! Bring me my spear - Oh clouds unfold! Bring me my chariot of fire!")

I strive to make amends when I fail. Hafiz (my spiritual buddy) also said “We are all moving forward with as much dignity, courage and style as we can muster.” My best is often so damn bad. I have no delusions about my performance level as a human being. I am just another biological unit moving forward with as much dignity, courage and style as I can muster.

I ponder the biological imperative that governs the range of human moods and I rail against its apparent capriciousness. I sometimes experience the world as so beautiful that I don't want to close my eyes and stop seeing it. Sometimes I am just another grumpy slug.

When I am not earnestly pondering biological imperatives, I like doing all the regular stuff – cooking, listening to music, reading, playing with friends, watching Netflix, writing, drawing, growing stuff, hiking, biking, canoeing, camping, sitting and breathing, roasting weenies, singing around a fire (I love fire – a woodstove or a campfire or the fire pit in my yard. Or just a candle. "There is not enough darkness in the whole world to put out the light of one candle." St. Francis said that, I think. There is magic in the world and fire is one of its manifestations, I am sure.) And dancing. I am big on contra dancing.

"The world is so full of a number of things. I think we should all be as happy as kings." (RLS)

I like reading history. History is full of great stories. I really love stories. Norwegian troll stories, Russian fire bird stories, Italian elf stories, Grimm's fairy tales, creation stories, the Bagavad Gita (me and Arjuna collapsed on the bottom of our chariots, unable to go forward, unable to go back.) Norse myths! The Kalevala. I am open to the profound spiritual depths that stories offer us.

Brahms. Beethoven. Schubert. I like the romantic composers. Also the classical ones. And baroque. So hard to choose. The Bach cello suites. Never trite. Always profound. Chopin. I used to LOVE playing the Nocturnes on the piano. Sacred and secular, I think all music is good if you just really listen. Kirtan. Blues. Mozart’s Requiem. Folk songs and rounds – Rise Up Singing!

I sometimes use a lot of words but I crave silence and solitude as much as I crave connection and communication.
