There’s always a story behind the story. There’s always a thread to pull that will unravel what matters between us, always an opening to look through that will change everything. But the nature of daily living distracts us. So to find the story behind each story we need to search for the larger truth behind our pieces of truth. There the wisdom of connection waits, beneath our immediate circumstances. When we care enough to pull the heart’s thread, we uncover the one common story we all come from. So listen to your life, the way you would listen to a sage too humble to call himself a sage. Look for the story behind all you’ve been through, the way you would search for the calming silence in the middle of a forest. Stories carry what keeps us alive the way veins carry blood. The story behind the story reveals a common holy moment, when something within us is moved so deeply by all that is around us that we try to touch it and speak to it. ~Mark Nepo
when we shy away from the pain of our heart work, we forget how to throw ourselves into the full yearning of beauty and goodness…..
inquiry for today~ how do you hide from your life? where do you really show up?
Soul is our appetite, driving us to eat from the banquet of life. People filled with the hunger of soul take food from every dish before them, whether it be sweet or bitter, ~Matthew Fox
