    "JUST DROP THE DARN ROPE!"

    In dealing with difficult thoughts, memories and emotions, the conventional approach is to try really hard to get rid of them, to not have them.  It can feel like being in a life-or-death tug-of-war with a scary, ferocious monster.  We can be so focused on vanquishing the monster – or at least not being destroyed by it – that we can’t pay attention to much else.  Like the magic of the natural world or the sad sweetness that is inherent in our everyday relationships with others.

    As we discussed a few weeks ago during Open House, the answer to this samsaric dilemma is to admit our powerlessness… to surrender… to just drop the darn rope.
