What we reflected on Weeks ending September 19

#mystery #openness

You alone can become yourself, but you cannot become yourself alone

If you ever feel like you’re the only one who doesn’t have it figured out, listen close. Life is not tidy. Growth is not linear. We are ALL wanderers.  We are all still learning. Erica Layne

We dredge up soil from the bed of mystery and build ourselves room to grow. And still the mystery surrounds us. It laps at our shores. It permeates the land. Scratch the surface of knowledge and mystery bubbles up like a spring.  Chet Raymo –  Honey From Stone

The divine mystery is not a collection of problems. As the mystics keep chanting, it is a light so bright that it blinds us, that we are bound to experience it as darkness.   John Carmody – How to Handle Trouble

If you want the moon, do not hide from the night. If you want a rose, do not run from the thorns. If you want love, do not hide from yourself. Rumi

Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me.   Psalm 23
