Use the Braille Method

143. Use the Braille Method

A few days ago I mentioned a workshop I attended with Stephen Levine. One of the wonder-filled things he said is that when it comes to our own dying or someone else who is close to us dying we are all using the Braille Method—just feeling our way along and doing the best we can.

I believe that so much. And I also believe that we use the Braille Method through parts of our life. I know that when my children were in the public schools, for the very first time I was the mother with children in the public schools. When it came to handling things, I was going on instinct. I was making quick decisions and trying to figure out how best to support my child. And it was clearly the Braille Method.

Levine writes about this in his book “Meetings at the Edge, Dialogues with the Grieving and the Dying.” And he writes, “There are no maps and there is really no doing it right. We all just do the best we can. Just feeling our way along from instant to instant, discovering what the next teaching is, what the next need is, discovering the unknown from moment to moment.”

Writing about it makes me want to read the book again—and think about death and dying, and also think about life and living, and using the Braille Method.
