“If you want to identify me, ask me not where I live, or what I like to eat, or how I comb my hair, but ask me what I am living for, in detail, ask me what I think is keeping me from living fully for the thing I want to live for.”

Evening Practice

February 25, 2012


Here I am-
On this day
I will receive
Whatever the practice offers-
For this is part
Of Opening to Grace,
Which is both
The Attitude of Allowing
And the Art of Acceptance

but to love much; and so,
do that which best stirs you to love.

“The sweetest thing in all my life has been the longing — to reach the Mountain, to find the place where all the beauty came from — my country, the place where I ought to have been born. Do you think it all meant nothing, all the longing? The longing for home? For indeed it now feels not like going, but like going back.”
― C.S. Lewis, Till We Have Faces: A Myth Retold
