So should we know we live in an ocean of life, and tho navigate safely takes patience, and the knowledge of waiting for the conditions of the waters to favor our voyage through …

    • like sitting in circles and calling on ritual…..how could we ever deny ancient wisdom? how could we not trust our inner knowing? may we listen……

  2. These quotes all speak to me. Waiting takes grace, recognizing the moment takes grace, bearing fruit takes grace. Grace comes only for the present moment. And grace comes from being grounded (at home) in God, living with the awareness that nothing is separate; we are literally all one body.

    Thanks again and again for finding and sharing what I know, yet forget and need reminding.
