that kind of, sort of feeling of peace

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?

the subtle shift of light

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
