where light moves

1-Pics for Blog Edits315

If you listen,
not to the pages or preachers
but to the smallest flower
growing from a crack
in your heart,
you will hear a great song
moving across a wide ocean
whose water is the music
connecting all the islands
of the universe together,
and touching all
you will feel it
touching you
around you-
embracing you
with light.

It is in that light
that everything lives
and will always be alive.

~John Squadra

follow that space where you bring light……know where that is…..discover how to tend it…….allow it to shine when others are dark…….bring in its essence, its softness, its tenderness…….

What suggestions of imperturbability and being, as against the human trait of mere seeming. Then the qualities, almost emotional, palpably artistic, heroic, of a tree; so innocent and harmless, yet so savage. It is, yet says nothing. How it rebukes by its tough and equable serenity all weathers, this gusty-temper’d little whiffet, man, that runs indoors at a mite of rain or snow…Go and sit in a grove or woods, with one or more of those voiceless companions, and read the foregoing, and think.

 ~Walt Whitman

who are you?

Discernment essentially means to distinguish between the life-giving and life-draining voices calling to us and learning that our lives each have their own unique rhythm. I like to think of life as a continual process of discovery, a pilgrimage through time and space.This rhythm of rise and fall calls us to remember that time is not always linear, moving us toward an end goal. Time can also be spiral, moving us in cycles of regeneration, growth, release, and stillness.  ~Christine Valters Paintner
