Yesterday read this:
Google NPR and Joy Harjo (This is Dee. I took down link because it might’ve been preventing this comment from being posted).
This quote, in particular, from Joy Harjo, our first Native American Poet Laureate, gave me a lot to think about because I have always held the unbearable stories in my body, in my heart…She writes
“We are all here to serve each other. At some point we have to understand that we do not need to carry a story that is unbearable. We can observe the story, which is mental; feel the story, which is physical; let the story go, which is emotional; then forgive the story, which is spiritual, after which we use the materials of it to build a house of knowledge”
? no problem with posting comment on my end; it showed up as soon as i posted it…? if I can, I always believe in sharing and posting the link from info that I present…
I went into PC yesterday where it’s easier to check if the comment’s been erroneously flagged. It was not. But it still doesn’t show up in my notifications. Even this morning. I do see this comment. Ugh. But the comment shows up for you? I need to figure this out.
Today the comment is here and it probably would’ve shown up with the link, too. I don’t understand why I couldn’t see it yesterday.
Your comment makes such an important point about Health and Freedom, both of which rely on changing how attached we are to our story. I’ve thought a lot about “letting it go” but what this quote invites and which I really really like, is this idea of using the story as a foundation for knowledge.
