100 Words- June 14

According to Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche, life is experience and experience is relationship. Without relationship, we have no existence. That seems an extreme statement, but, thinking about it, the very fact we have the body we have is because two people, one male and one female, had some kind of connection. We continue to exist, in a very vulnerable form as babies, and only survive because our survival needs, food, shelter, and etc., are supplied, for a rather long period of time, by the  adults of our species. If we did not have these nurture relationships, we would quickly cease to be.

About elrondsilvermaul

I never know what to say about myself. I let what I write try to speak as to who I am. I can only add, here, that I am 72, live in a nursing home, am twenty years a cancer survivor, and identify as a gay male. I intend to use this blog as storage for poems? written over the long years (and still being written). This does not preclude other uses.
