Ain’t no shame in holding onto grief. As long as you make room for other things too.
We absolutely must leave room for doubt or there is no progress and there is no learning. There is no learning without having to pose a question. And a question requires doubt. People search for certainty. But there is no certainty. People are terrified — how can you live and not know? It is not odd at all. You only think you know, as a matter of fact. And most of your actions are based on incomplete knowledge and you really don’t know what it is all about, or what the purpose of the world is, or know a great deal of other things. It is possible to live and not know.

Meditation upon a wilting blossom.
Anyone when gazing upon a blossom in the garden can appreciate the beauty of the flower. Then the flower is cut and she remains lovely, In fact even her fragrance is enhanced. Slowly then her freshness fades and the scent fades as her freshness fades. Yet, even in the fading there is beauty. Can you see the fresh blossom in the wilted flower? Can you see the beauty in the faded bloom. Not the beauty of what was but the beauty of what is. When you can see the wilting in the flower bud and the bud in the faded bloom your eyes will be open for the first time.
