From Joan Bird. I’ve watched half of this sweet video, enough to know that it parallels my own experience in the hospital when I was 26 and dying of peritonitis. . .
This encounter with the inner divine upended my life. I went from “good” to “bad,” from being an insider, to being an outlier, from “living from the outside in” to “living from the inside out.”
Never, not once, despite many material and emotional losses, have I ever regretted that single, simple switch in focus from trying to uphold an image to surrendering to mystery.
