In my experience, reason neither enables nor supports empathy or social justice.
Every day we accept a new day, and hence we change our disposition and composition with this acceptance.
In every moment, we accept new conditions of that moment and our own condition alters in the face of this acceptance.
With every new idea we accept, we alter the context of other ideas we hold and thus alter the very fiber of our minds.
We feel every step we take along this road as both a little death and a greater opening to life. Whenever something is “held” it fills the space we need for life support, while at the same time it preserves some process that we were using to function. Perhaps one of the biggest paradoxes in life is that in order to LIVE we must be willing to sacrifice function. To have the liberty to embrace full expression, we must give up older landmarks, or definitions of our path, and sometimes whole paths all together.
The path to liberation is a path of little deaths that create the space in us to allow true fullfillment.
