A strange passion is moving in my head.
My heart has become a bird
Which searches in the sky.
Every part of me goes in different directions.
Is it really so
That the one I love is everywhere?

- Rumi


This book has done something for me that I haven't yet identified. Half way through, the fearful voices of daemons have diminished and the graceful love of self has increased. Acceptance of the present moment is Big Medicine. Maybe the biggest. Inviting Mara to tea is the only the beginning. One can not open the heart fully and expect to only welcome what's pleasant. A full life is a collection of fully embodied moments. The sensations of those moments are not as important as the fullness of experiencing them.
