What we reflected on the weeks ending April 8, 2022

#allinthistogether.

WE ARE SAFE because we are connected, not because we are worthy.

WE ARE ONE, after all, you and I, together we suffer, together exist and forever will recreate each other. Teillard de Chardin

IN THE MIDST OF CRISES, a solidarity guided by faith enables us to translate the love of God in our globalized culture, not by building towers or walls that divide, but then collapse, but by interweaving communities and sustaining processes of growth that are truly human and solid. And to do this, solidarity helps. . . . Richard Rohr

I SWIM with others.
Some are dolphins, some are sharks.
Which is which depends on the temperature of the water
or the weather. Something: it’s not clear.
Robin Knight – Shellfish

IN LOVING SOLIDARITY, we each bear what is ours to carry, the unjust weight of crucifixion, in expectant hope for God’s transformation. Richard Rohr

#itmatters

NO MATTER HOW old you are, you can always find things to do that matter.

MAY YOU REALIZE that the shape of your soul is unique, that you have a special destiny here, that behind the facade of your life there is something beautiful, good, and eternal happening. John O’Donohue – For Solitude

#meditation

JOY IS the state that arises when we allow ourselves to experience everything as it unfolds, without judgement. It arises when we are being – without condition.       Michael Brown – The Presence Process

May you have the passion to heal what has hurt you, and allow it to come closer and become one with you. John O’Donohue – For Old Age

#spring

ALL THE BURIED SEEDS crack open in the dark the instant they surrender to a process they can’t see.  … In nature, we are quietly given countless models of how to give ourselves over to what appears dark and hopeless, but which is ultimately an awakening that is beyond all imagining.  This moving through the dark into blossom is the threshold to God. Mark Nepo  – The Book of Awakening
