In my experience, support is always here. Not always in the same ways for everyone, (or even all parts of oneself) at the same moment, but it's always here. .
What it takes to recognize it, seems to be a perpetual, moment to moment humbling mixed with a hunger to reach, and to stand up.
There's a sense both of meekness and strength in this mix. .
There seem to be a lot of moments of leaping before the road is known, all the way up to death, that pepper this path of recognizing support. There also seems to be a fair amount of stopping, sometimes mid-stride, mid-drive to attune to the felt sense of being, the felt sense of the hunger/drive, and learning how to meet that. .
What's most thrilling perhaps is that a lot of times, the discovery of support is in asking a question inside or aloud, and then joining with another being. (Whether or not they answer the “actual’ question or respond perfectly to my inquiry with a satisfactory answer or resource isn't what I’m speaking to here) But it's more... there I am, and in the moment (or often upon later reflection) I am knowing that somehow, they are an answer to a question I'm asking. .
This is not something that feels systematized or processual, but maybe something closer to a way of living together that respects life. It feels like a mutual seeing. It naturally (or likely with some practice) presupposes what/whom I am with in this meeting, is a response to a question I have or one i am holding for someone/thing else. It seems to be less about who the other is in the meeting, because people, (maybe more than ever), are able to see themselves clear enough in their pain, or their reach, or their joy, or their space, to be in tune with their own questions; and can thereby recognize the same thing in me, or in whomever they’re meeting, as they're coming with their own questions, their own explorations. .
This feels like life to me. Like actual life and humanness. In this moment I have a new found appreciation for this phrase; "This is giving me so much life right now”, because it feels true. .
It feels like a super-boon to experience that what we are, are the answers to each other's questions-
