It’s September and the beginning of school for many whether in a virtual way or in actual attendance. Either way the clarion word when learning is attendance . . . a juicy subject for this month.
Haven’t we all been caught in black and white thinking some time or other? This is Good and that is Bad. It can be thought of as a way to try to be in certitude. But when are in humble attendance we will see that nothing is divided like that. As in the yin yang sign, there is a little bit of white in the black and a little bit of black in the white. I think if we are serious about attendance we will be called to tolerate tension, to be able to stay open to complexity, to not seek to know “ahead of time” but to discover the way by being attentive on the way.
