moving… or not?

In the world of appearances, we have moved–our address has changed, our home layout is different, our belongings are finding new resting places. I have established yet another spoon drawer in this kitchen, and a drawer with items that have holes (strainers, steamers, grater, colander).

But what has moved, really? This-that-we-are, this that never leaves and is ever-present, doesn’t move. This bright and radiant no-thing remains ever radiant and bright. All the rest comes and goes.

We can depend on that.

One response to “moving… or not?

    So was it like this?
    Before the move it was a Mountain (of boxes)
    During the move it was no longer a Mountain
    After the move it was a Mountain again (until they were unpacked)
    Wink wink smile
