(zazen streak day 9th)
The current situation of the communication between the (4) of us seems quite desperate. In a way it just doesn’t work. There is no understanding. No patience. No tolerance. No means are safe. No moments good. No topics without danger.
And I just realised one of the #opportunities 200WaD is giving us…
We have been, for quite a while, touching the subject of Safe Space here. Talking intimate issues. Often speaking (indirectly/directly?) to each other. Couldn't we try to use the haven of this shore. To set a Temporary Safe Space on 200WaD.
This would not be our private glass dome, protecting us, yet sentencing to a very limited space with a very small escape door. This is an open, public place. I see it as a small beautiful park. Pretty isolated from the noise and hassle of "ordinary" life. With friendly, smart, openhearted, yet in a way indifferent, people. It seems spacious. Lively. I see trees and flowers. Benches and shady spots. I hear birds singing and dogs barking (and both species pooping joyfully).
Do you think, @philh , it might be safe enough for you?
I would like to be really frank here. Full blown openness. Could we try?
