Dear In the Moment, Just got up from a nap. I'm going to a retreat for a year to meditate on what you wrote. Yet seriously, I'm intrigued by your mention that "if we continue to look to the future 'us' perhaps we miss the gold of who we are right now". I'm wondering if you read my previous article which I deleted but was replaced by half of it, this "Compassion Blessing". It was meant to bring to light the feeling many have at times that we are "not enough". It needed more work and addressing of the gold so I deleted it but it almost seems like you read it. Did you? I'll reflect on your response which I appreciate you taking the time to share.
