the raw beauty of life

life is beautiful, but not pretty
– Ken Wilber

There is no doubt for me, who is living with two chronic diseases for the last 25 years, that life can be nightmarish, harsh, chaotic, arbitrary, challenging, traumatic.

But, and there is a big BUT, as I was introduced to body-mind modalities, to caring mindfulness, to wider perspectives on the Essence of Life, as I learned to clean my shit and show up from the depth of my being, I came to cherish the raw beauty of life.
