The contentment of the witness

Renounce the tyranny of positive thinking. People who only talk about success, abundance, and joy usually want to sell us something.

There is grace in loss, sorrow, and bewilderment too. Breathe through tears, troughs, shadows. The seer of light is the seer of darkness.

The nectar of seeing is the sweetness. The moment I abandon my preference for the full over the empty, the void is a voluptuous rose.
