This is my voice

Or, "All life is suffering."
Or perhaps, better yet, "Yes."
Best of all, the answer, "You are right, and I am wrong,"
It is a good answer, but words are no parachute.
I will not fight you, Beloved.
I cannot fight you, Beloved.
I have answers, but I don't have the right answers.
I have no way to answer any of your points or questions that will not result in more pain and more questions.
Logic and reason strapped on like bracers and greaves and the holy glowing Breastplate of Truth itself are no match for the one-pointedness of the Sword of Subjectivity.
Standing on the edge of this precipice, there is no safe space.
No defense.
No desire to defend, nor to attack.
Rather than cling to the ledge, I step off it, trusting that I can handle what comes next.
Perhaps Phantom Ranch waits at the bottom of this Grand Canyon.
A hailstorm hit last time I tried climbing down.
I zipped a Chinese woman up inside my coat with me until the storm passed.
A message sent ahead to my partner through other hikers pushing on: "Turning back."
It snowed the rest of that day on the South Rim.
We watched it from the warmth of our bed.
Had each other for lunch and dinner.
Love is the best nourishment of all.
Will it conquer all?

Besides hailstorms and rainstorms, the "what comes next" hazards can include trauma from falling rocks, fatigue from extreme heat, hypothermia, lost footing and drowning from flash flooding, but with the promise of a Bright Angel always nearby...

Omnia vincit Amor: et nos cedamus Amori!
