should not be here…

My ego contends that I should not be here.

This place where new horizons are dawning: awakening to a new way of being in the world; a new way of being with others . . .

this uncomfortable space where the status quo will not do;

this place where Truth shines in dark corners.

My ego insists that I abandon this nonsense;

where change might become the norm;

where letting go of the temporal is the invitation . . .

My ego demands that I should not be here . . .

but curiosity and wholeness on the tongue speaks to something in me deeper still . . .

I cannot go back . . .

I cannot stay where I am . . .

yet now is the gift given. . .

 





Simple places…

(The non-profit for which I work, Well for the Journey, went on a pilgrimage to Gettysburg this past Friday…just some thoughts and photos from a pilgrims journey).

May we be mindful of the simple things in our living:

leaves blowing in wind and colors given . . .

the symmetry of life and the chaos that arises within what is balanced;

vistas that take our breath and breath that sustains the simple . . .

ordinary places and hallowed ground spaces . . .

like this nook where I sit now,

letting reflection and contemplation have their way . . .
