‘Just on way home , dentist described tooth as lively as he worked on it . I was expecting him any moment to say, ‘Is safe? Is safe?’
My reply: Just finished two hour meditation and sitting in Pret a Manger on Piccadilly. Had a chat to Brian who has been happily living out of a backpack in London for eight years .. clean, educated and loves his life.
Thought I had while meditating is that we grow up hard and resistant, ripen then soften like an apple; grubs drill down inside, we drop from the tree and slowly merge with the world around us. As people get older they become softer, more understanding, maybe more loving. At the same time our bodies open up to the world and are slowly dismantled until they stop working altogether and we return to the elements. I hope the dentist has done a good job of easing the discomfort that comes with the world’s deep embrace. 😉
‘Very well said and to the point. Not sure we all get softer and understanding though.’
