There are plenty of things to notice, of course, besides the way love shapes things, reshapes things. When we grasp the concept of metamorphosis in evolving nature and consciousness, when we meditate upon the formingness of life all about us, we can begin to experience in ourselves the stages of our development. We can grasp the fact that at any moment what seems most certain to us is an illusion. It is an illusion in that it precedes and presages a further revelation of ourselves. It is an illusion in that we cling to it and make it a foundation for permanent values, when indeed it is permanent in its meaning but ephemeral in its functioning. This is the act toward which we prepare ourselves; to incarnate as artistic vision, to integrate, unify, fuse indwell. Acceptance is part of love. It is devotion to the whole. ~M.C. Richards
when words do not fulfill the voice of the heart, we know we are falling deeply and purposefully into being….
inquiry for today~ settle in a little deeper into winter and seek out the light….
There is a brokenness out of which comes the unbroken,
And a fragility out of whose depths emerge strength.
There is a hollow space too vast for words
through which we pass with each loss,
out of whose darkness we are sanctioned into being.
There is a cry deeper than all sound
whose serrated edges cut the heart
as we break open to the place inside
which is unbreakable and whole.
