Marginalizing (9.13.12)

“Pay attention to who and what you are marginalizing. Open to it. The cries of those outside of you, the cries inside of you. The tender soft spot you wish could be just a little harder so you could press on unmoved by this sad strange world. Find the pit of suffering and despair, and climb in… Tell me what you see standing at the bottom. The flooding light at the distant top seems too far for reach… But stay at the bottom awhile and the light will fill your eyes and heart as though you were right up close to the radiant sun. The light is never more than a glance away, no matter how far down the hole we go.”
