Daily Obsession: Forward!

These Daily Obsessions are like a vitamin for the soul. Take one as needed for obsessive worrying and criticizing. The Grandmothers are but one face of the Divine; substitute another if you prefer.



Vooruit, altijd vooruit. … Je gaat waar je nog niet eerder bent gegaan. Wij kunnen niet beschrijven hoe dit is, grinnikten ze, omdat er niets is om meet te vergelijken. … Geniet van de reis, keer niet terug om dingen vast te houden. Alles is nieuw, nu. Nieuw. … Geschiedenis, merkten ze op, of die nu persoonlijk of cultureel is, is niets anders dan verhalen. Verhalen, herhaalden ze, dat is alles. Maar jij ben nu hier. Kom met ons mee. Kom mee vooruit.” – De Grootmoeders door Sharon McErlane in Een oproep van de Grootmoeders, p. 324

Ik kan hier weinig aan toevoegen. Vooruit!

Forward, always forward. … You are going where you have never been before. We cannot describe how this is, they grinned, because there is nothing to compare it to. … Enjoy the trip, do not go back to hang on to things. Everything is new, now. New. … History, they remarked, whether it is personal or cultural, is nothing more than stories. Stories, they repeated, that is all. But you are here. Come with us. Come with us and go forward. – The Grandmothers via Sharon McErlane in Our Love is Our Power, around p. 320

I have little to add to this, besides “read this whole passage in the book!” Onward and forward…
