the cool fire of grace

the golden orb

There is a goodness, a Wisdom that arises, sometimes gracefully, sometimes gently, sometimes awkwardly, sometimes fiercely, but it will arise to save us if we let it, & it arises from within us, like the force that drives green blossoming like a pear tree, into flowering, into fragrance, fruit, & song…into that part of ourselves, that can never be defiled, defeated or destroyed, but that comes back to life, time & time again, that lives- always- that does not die….China Gallard

our most profound grace comes from our ability to find meaning….amidst all of the vague & unanswerable experiences we carry, our sadness finds a home in the garden of allowing….a home for suffering…..

measuring our grave with a soul palette….

To deal with the powerful urges of the deep soul, a poetic attitude rather than a rational one is more effective. Wisdom rather than information guides us, providing the patience to become acquainted with the soul rather than the impatience that leads us into quick cures & explanations. The point is not to flee our depths but reconnect with them…..Thomas Moore
