Relentless Gift

Don’t we often recognize many of the lessons and gifts of our life retrospectively? When we are experiencing a particular challenge, aren’t we often anxious to get through it as quickly as possible? As we make meaning out of life, often we engage in a deeper conversation with our past, present, and future—all at once.

The poet, David Whyte, writes that we are often drawn to “making false choices: living only in the past, or only in the present, or only in the future, or even, living only two out of the three.” (Consolations: The Solace, Nourishment and Underlying Meaning of Everyday Words.)
