so… what happens when an assumption is seen to be empty is that a new, simpler perception takes its place, which itself is likely to contain presumptions I’ve not noticed. What has get clearer, talking yesterday to Beth on the local team about end-of-life scenarios, there is no pendant axe that will fall and suddenly give rise to a more serious situation. I am already in the serious situation. I already have a whole lot of advanced cancer that will simply get worse and at a certain point, the situation won’t support life. Why this feels so liberating is peculiar – but it is so. I guess, any dropping away of illusion is a buzz for a while!
