I went to a meditation group last night in Oakland. After we meditated the instructor read a poem. I liked it so much I wanted to share!

It's called The Dakini Speaks by Jennifer Welwood

My friends, let's grow up.
Let's stop pretending we don't know the deal here.
Or if we truly haven't noticed, let's wake up and notice.
Look: everything that can be lost, will be lost.
It's simple--how could we have missed it for so long?
Let's grieve our losses fully, like ripe human beings,
But please, let's not be so shocked by them.
Let's not act so betrayed,
As though life had broken her secret promise to us.
Impermanence is life's only promise to us,
And she keeps it with ruthless impeccability.
To a child she seems cruel, but she is only wild,
And her compassion is exquisitely precise:
Brilliantly penetrating, luminous with truth,
She strips away the unreal to show us the real.
This is the true ride -- let's give ourselves to it!
Let's stop making deals for a safe passage:
There isn't one anyway, and the cost is too high.
We are not children any more.
The true human adult gives everything for what cannot be lost.
Let's dance the wild dance of no hope!


I hope your day is spectacular.
Love,
Honnie

all i have in my fridge is a bottle of ketchup and 3 lemons.
i have $8 in my bank account and $$$$$$ worth of debt. (okay so most of that from school but a lot of that is from buyin' shit and going out to eat like a baller)
my lease AND job ends in two weeks. i have no where to live and no new job lined up.
i ate top ramen and tortilla chips for breakfast.
I AM THE WORST ADULT EVER.

One of my new year's resolutions was to not make bad decisions.
UM WAY TO SET MYSELF UP FOR FAILURE.
