Had quite a powerful acupuncturing yesterday. Some very powerful points, but fortunately not particularly painful points. For example, Spirit Burial Ground--a point they reach for when your spirit needs to be resurrected.
Also a very good talk about coming to grips with the truth of the moment. Some things to which I had to say farewell were surprisingly easy to come to terms with. One might have expected the farewell to the "graduation organ gig, I had to give up playing the organ because (a) I couldn't control the pedals anymore, and (b) I couldn't get onto and more importantly stay on the bench without falling over. And this was a farewell after doing this same gig for forty years. And yet, somehow it was OK to say goodbye.
Now, I'm in a different state. A much worse one. The "I can't do this at all" list keeps getting longer... and for certain things, it's just time to come clean; things have changed. Definitely.
Tell the truth with love; very much my prescription this week. The truth has power; the anime Earth Maiden Arjuna (superlative soundtrack, amazing visual design, but for the most part, with a really skanky script) at some point features a character saying that truth has power simply by being true. And definitely, true is definitely true.
So hard as this is, this is a gift indeed. I no longer have a choice.
Time to tell the truth.
And yet, the harder it is... speak the truth with love. Face it--yet, still, speak that truth with love.
