You can’t meditate forever. Sooner or later you have got to get back into the real world and deal with all of the temptation, all of the betrayal, and all of the pain. No one is going to be there to protect you from being hurt. For even recovering drug addicts can’t spend their whole lives in rehab.
But once you get to be a certain age it seems impossible to trust people completely. And when I say trust people I mean to have faith in their ability to assist you in the journey of life. And when I say you of course I am talking about me.
I am not as resilient as I would allow people to believe. Sometimes I need time to recuperate from a loss. So how long will it take this time? I honestly have no idea.
