Our present culture teaches us to accumulate, but not how to make empty. But for real spiritual work in the inner and outer worlds, in order to give space to the divine, in order to return to the sacred, we need to practice a certain purification in our daily lives. We learn to eat consciously, to be attentive to our outer environment, to sweep our courtyard. We also need to learn how to clean our house, both physically and inwardly. Just as we need to learn to empty our mind in meditation, to clear away the clutter of unnecessary thoughts, so do we need to consciously clean our living space. ~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee
how can we go on? we return again to see how we have lost sight of our path…..
inquiry for today~ who will you hold along the way? how will you clean your space for living?
Everywhere, what is inner
is bursting to become outer:
the yellow of daffodils inches up
their stems, while the wings of
unborn eagles stir inside their
eggs, and the feelings of children
begin to sprout language, as the
water in the ocean swells and
spits and sprays and tries to
leave itself- this is the source
of waves, the source of their
beauty- that they can’t.
It’s how we love.
