In one sense we are always traveling, & traveling as if we did not know where we were going. In another sense we have already arrived. We cannot arrive at the perfect possession of God in this life, & that is why we are traveling & in darkness. But we already possess Him by grace, & therefore, in that sense, we have arrived & are dwelling in the light. But oh! How far I have to go to find You in Whom I have already arrived……Thomas Merton
the wax & wane forces our awareness….teases every fiber of deep knowing to wake from seed…let it break through…like your life…let life crack you open….
Not consciousness & self-understanding but a passionate inner presence makes us what & who we are. It is tempting to think that we are shaped by our intentions & our awareness. We are more original than we can imagine. We are driven from a place beneath awareness, & what drives us….angel, daimon, animus, duende…hurls us toward our identity & our place in time & space…..Thomas Moore
