This is my first comment on a radio show. ever. Roshi Halifax never quite answered your question about the complement to grief. Wouldn't that be love? There's is no grief without love, no love without grief... From the small grief of seeing my daughter off on a long flight to the deep grief surrounding my mother's long illness and death, one thought help-- "it would be worse if I felt nothing." The prospect of grief inevitable is a shadow that gives depth to today's joy, the the dark rounding "umami" of love -- and experience, Thank you.
