The Field

“Out beyond ideas of wrong and right, there is a field. I’ll meet you there.” Rumi

Sometimes judgements and arguments and the insistence that we are “right,” weigh us down. They lead nowhere.

Other times, especially if this is a war with the self, the “right” and “wrong” is pure resistance to whatever you want or how things are, or even frustration with how you are.

So what’s the release? Where is this “field”?

I cannot tell you where but I can tell you “how.”

The how is in kindness and compassion, the release comes from surrender or from understanding, a deep acceptance.

This is not easy.

We’ve been culturally conditioned that if we don’t like it, change it. That advice is good but it is awful if what we don’t like seems insurmountable or impossible to change.

Chinese medicine has a different way of looking at the world.

Closely connected to observing nature, what replaces wrong or right is, well, similar to seeing that the day is “sunny” or “wet.” And that’s it. No follow through of “awful rain” or “good sunshine.”

It is what it is.

And here we are, the field that Rumi spoke of.
