Buddhist teachers often suggest to be with the moment
Neutral to the good and the bad, not clinging!
On the day that Jesus left the tomb
His lover, Mary M was bereft
His body was gone
And her careful attentions to it were on longer required.
The tomb was empty
In her sorrow she couldn’t see him until he spoke to her
Instinctively she rushed towards him but he stopped her in her tracks,saying
“Do not Cling”
When I first met my husband of forty two years
He quieted my restless heart
With these lyrics from a Rolling Stones song,
“You can’t always get what you want,
You can’t always get what you want,
But if you try sometime
You might find you get want you need!
Higher truth has a ring and a sting to it, rock on.
Happy International Women’s Day, March 8th
to all of you groovy sisters and brothers.
