Over the years, I’ve learned that the inner life is not a refuge in which to hide from experience, but a practice ground from which to gather strength and clarity to enter the world.
The task of coming alive and staying alive is beautiful and endless. Every day, we’re asked to move at the pace of what is real, to take the risk to be wholehearted, and to have the courage to stay soft and strong and kind. These vows of authenticity allow us to thrive. In moments of thriving, we repair each other and illuminate the world.
birthdays call us to lean in…..may I remember to lean in and love well
inquiry for today~ what will you celebrate on this full moon birthday?
As my prayer became more attentive and inward, I had less and less to say. I finally became completely silent. This is how it is. To pray does not mean to listen to oneself speaking. Prayer involves becoming silent, and being silent, and waiting until God is heard.
