The Tao of Relationship

Now, I’ll be the first to admit that my back goes up a bit when Dar says, ‘You might want to look at what you are setting up there.’ I am so invested in my story, my preconceived notion of what is going on, that I have to really work at ‘just looking, just seeing.’ I want it to be the way I imagine it, as I have my self, my view, and my distress all rolled up in the game.

The Zen of Insight

We sit, and observe, and suddenly the background mental chatter is right there, as plain and obvious as can be. It’s largely crap, and consists of half-formed stories that serve like the little images in a DVD index. We see the little image, get all intrigued, and push “PLAY.”
Except that we are the director, writer, and cinematographer, and all the work happens as we push the PLAY button.
None of it exists until we make it up.
