The Indigo Girls and Pema Chodron need to talk

July 1, 2009

Timing has been very funny lately, and this is no exception. Last night I was listening to the Indigo Girls sing "Closer to Fine", and then this morning I was reading a Pema Chodron book. Why is it funny? Check out these two quotes:

From the Indigo Girls song "Closer to Fine":

"The less I seek my source for some definitive, the closer I am to fine."

From Pema Chodron:

"Only to the extent that we expose ourselves over and over to annihilation can that which is indestructible be found in us."

My take is that the Indigo Girls need to continue seeking their source, if they haven't already. As Zen Master Seung Sahn says, "You must become completely crazy."
