Trust this Unfolding

We aren’t in control.

Nobody has the wheel.

This world is so complex, the combination of thousands of combinations.

Humanity seems to be hurtling towards the void.

Maybe it is.

Nobody really knows!

This species, this world has a life of its own.

Made up of thousands of tiny fractal lives within lives.

Things are unfolding. Mysteriously. Painfully. Beautifully. Dully. Magically.

We can’t control it, but we can dive in. Drink the mystery.

Take care of the qi, tend to it.

Follow the yang as it transmutes into yin, and back again.

Every moment is infinitely precious and important.

Every moment matters not at all.

Life is eternal, even when it isn’t. Forms spring up, forms pass under.

The universe expands and contracts like our in and out breaths.

We are here now!

We will always be here!

We are all the things that are not we!

Let go, let go, let go, let flow.

Trust this unfolding.

Be this unfolding!
