I have been watching a special “comedy” routine by Hannah Gadsby. She is a wonderfully strong person who is intelligent, funny, well educated, and successful. She taught me lots about feeling connected in a way we all long for, beyond gender and power.
A very wise student of mine asked a wonderful Kabbalistic question: When is ”not-making” doing nothing? And when is it doing something?
Jason Shulman describes not making in this manner.
“Not-making is that condition in which things are simply what they are and we are not making a “secondary something” out of primary experience. We engage with reality directly."

Before my mother died she said to me; “I wish you could stop trying to fix yourself! Why can’t you just be more like me?!”
I have a dining room cupboard filled with dishes and china from relatives who have long since died. I never fully thought about whose they were because my younger sister remembered it all.
She died six years ago.

I am often fearful of letting anyone hear who I truly am. I open myself to the worst of all reactions from others… silence. There I write tragic and negative stories about the messages from the other person.
