I’m not a mess but a deeply feeling person in a messy world. I explain that now, when someone asks me why I cry so often, I say, “For the same reason I laugh so often- because I’m paying attention.” I tell them that we can choose to be perfect and admired or to be real and loved. We must decide. ~Glennon Doyle
did you ever forget how to be? how to love? how to live?
inquiry for today~ when the day feels weepy and drawn in, reach in and open to grace…..what does that feel like to you?
When someone says or does something that I find either obnoxious or unattractive- anything that my ego uses to separate myself from others- if I’m aware of that then I’ll just soften my eyes and fall back into that “something else.” That something else is what does the transforming- it is the grace that makes it work. My only effort is to be aware enough to realize what’s happening. The moment of realizing is actually, in itself, a form of healing. The moment I see that and am willing to fall back into grace, then there’s a possibility for something different to happen within myself. Instead of judging an experience- which makes more separation- I can fall back into letting the universe handle it. This is a gift that’s quite freeing. ~Kathleen Dowling Singh
