To see myself and my life as they truly are is joy.
After all the struggle and avoiding and denying and going the other way,
it is deeply satisfying for a second to be there with life as it is.
The satisfaction is the very core of ourselves.
Who we are is beyond words –
just that open power of life, manifesting constantly in all sorts of interesting things,
even in our own misery and struggles.
The hassle is both horrendous and wholesome.
