I wrote this after a long session with a client. The sadness and suffering he had been going through for such a long time sparked an old dialogue. Maybe one of the oldest dialogues around! What am I doing here? Why is this happening to me? Am I doing the right things or not? Etcetera, etcetera. I guess the trick is to stay in the moment and in the feelings they initiate without identifying with them. I know it doesn't bring instant relief, but seeking knowledge in order to answer these fundamental questions (and staying the course) is the first real step towards freedom. Understanding follows. And after that you can collect your courage in order to jump off the proverbial deep end. Why? To realize that what you've been looking for was there all along! Like the man who, late at night, lost his way home in the fog and fell asleep on the steps of an unknown house while waiting for the fog to clear. When he woke up he looked up and realized he had been sleeping outside of his own front door!
