100 Words: Rock Lobster

Why not a human lobster body?  Protect tenderness with armor and claws!  Impervious!  But no, skin is on the outside, bones are in.

Our human design invites feeling it all and responding.  Practice paying attention to all sensations.

Physically, emotionally; outside, inside — we are tender and sensitive.

Ever defend yourself from emotional pain with humor, bullying, or anger?  Yeah.  Me, too.  Like a rock lobster shell, defending allows blundering through life — oblivious to pain felt or caused.

Skin and emotions beg for attention: listen deeply, respond mindfully.

Feel it all and respond with sensitivity, awareness, gentleness, and kindness.  Inside and out.
