Bite the hand that feeds you?
Feed the hand that uhhh…bites you?
If you haven’t read Mikey’s take on the Full Moon, Neptune/Chiron go read it.
It’s very good.
What to do with the intimacy created when someone harms you?
or when you harm them?
The bond that suddenly exists, vulnerability creates an opening.
What do you do with it?
Ignore it and wait for it to go away?
Acknowledge the useless of feelings in general?
(wait did I just say that?!…laughs)
I think you use your vulnerability for your own ends and means.
When my father was dying, a kind woman once told me that
when your heart breaks, it breaks you open to the world.
Something has to crack that nut and pain has a very large hammer.

Oh I know the feeling! I have the feeling.
Contrariwise, the miracle of it, is that each touch brings us to life.
Whether pain or pleasure, it’s valuable sensation.
Participation, our existence offers untold, unfathomable impact on others.
Beyond what our senses allow to penetrate, there is more, always un-glimpsed more.
I looked at THIS and thought how very like a map of brain synapses.
Everything ever becoming, and with no sign of stopping now.

pretty is as pretty does.
Part of moving through Chiron, is working with shame.
Not losing the lesson, AND not letting it define you.
Can you allow pain to stick around until it leaves willingly,
without feeding it or shutting it down?
