In The Now

I’m reading Living Beautifully with Uncertainty and Change by Pema Chodron.  I started to take notes, underline and highlight words, phrases and sentences and even fold the corner of a particularly interesting and compelling page – marking my spots. Ironically, a major theme and premise of the book is the reality of impermanence, change and uncertainty, summed up by this quote from Chris Hedges, “the moral ambiguity of human existence.”  Here I am trying to make the book into something permanent, as if to say, “this is something so important I cannot, I will not forget it – I will have it forever and return to it over and over again.”  My journey in reading this delightful and meaningful book is to experience it, to allow myself to go on the journey with it, to make something relational between it and myself.

I’m going to go to my reading of it now…
