“Those who are willing to be vulnerable move among mysteries,” said the poet Theodore Roethke. To be vulnerable to the mystery of our life as it presents itself requires forgoing our hopes and fears for the future and being willing to taste what is here before us, in all its poignant bittersweetness. For the only richness that leaves a trace, the only happiness worth living for, is the full-bodied sensuous and sensual experience that is possible now, right now. When we can let down the barricades and allow that we are not built to last, this moment will shine as sweetly as the moon, and we shall feast on our life.
