Sometimes I just can’t get my balance. I’ve caused someone harm, been hurt by the world, lost someone I love. I’m so upset that all I can do is turn away. The ground feels unstable. I’m balancing on the head of a pin.

Sometimes, I can find my balance. It’s the same situation but I don’t turn away. I’m terrified, but still, I stand still. Surprisingly, I neither implode nor dissolve. After a while, I can breathe. After a while longer, I can feel. Sometimes I can even remember that it’s not only me. It’s you, too. It’s everyone. 

As Ram Dass said, we’re all just walking each other home.
