In the second half of life, we have moved from doing to being to an utterly new kind of doing that flows almost organically, quietly, & by osmosis. Your concern is not so much to have what you love anymore, but to love what you have. All of life’s problems & difficulties are now resolved not by force, logical resolution or negativity, but by falling into a larger ‘brightness.’ Gerald Manley Hopkins called it ‘the dearest freshness deep down in things.’ This is falling upward…….Richard Rohr
our lives are a work of art…we sculpt, paint, dance, & write our hearts into a beautifully timed cadence of prayer & discernment……an inner freedom shines light into dark…
we live our paradoxes…we hold our sadnesses a little more gently…. we revel in the many shades of blue in our world rather than despair in the futility of changing the complexities….
The beauty of embracing deep truths is that you don’t have to change your life; you just change how you live your life. There is no rule that says you have to close. This choice to enjoy life will lead you through your spiritual journey. Unconditional happiness will teach you every single thing there is to learn about yourself & the nature of life…..Michael Singer
