Without all this

Without all this -- without the constant battering 
of struggle, change and longing --
we would become complacent; remain foolishly self-absorbed.
In all of life, both good and bad, we find both hurt and healing:
both imprisonment and freedom; both resistance and a yielding;
and finally, both at the root and at the destination,
the Source that feeds, and challenges, and claims us as its own.
