We’re always asked to live into the question: What is our relationship to the vast depth of all things, to the empty canvas of life that paradoxically holds everything? Within this larger question, we each inhabit a singular life that has its feelings, pains, aches, and questions. We’re committed to that life, of course, because we don’t just live in the depth world. We’re human beings who live on Earth and we can’t help but wake in the visceral kaleidoscope of the daily world. We drink water and cut the grass and pay the bills, while feeling wonder, awe, enervation, and doubt. We’re left to inhabit this very personal exchange between our own particular life and the ground of all life. The depth world- through the soil of its spaciousness, its emptiness, and its bareness- infuses our particular life with wholeheartedness, a hearted gene of the Whole. This infusion of Wholeness gives us the resources to meet whatever life brings us, the way fertile soil infuses stems, flowers, and fruits with the sustenance to grow.  ~Mark Nepo

there is enough poverty of living…..enough despair…..enough drought of heart……may we fill our wells with holy wonder and curiosity and enough love to feed each other……

I am alone but not alone enough to make every moment holy.

~Rilke

remember how to get lost in awe?

Freedom is presence, not absence.

Centering is the act of bringing in, not leaving out.

It is brought about not by force but by coordination.

~M.C. Richards
