That which is little…September 28, 2016
‘Today my eyes are open more widely and I look out upon a broader horizon. Across all the experiences I may have had that were limited or unpleasant I now see the rosy hue of a new dawn. Letting go of that which is little, I now enter into a larger concept of life. Realizing that every form of uncertainty is seeing only in part, I open my spiritual eyes to that which is wholeness, which is greater and better.’
<Science of Mind>
‘I commit to a lifetime of ongoing conversion and transformation, recognizing that I am always on a journey with both gifts and limitations.’
Messy is the way.June 25, 2016
Thank you, Kerri Kelly.
‘I used to see a butterfly in my mind’s eye every time I heard the word transformation, but life has schooled me. Transformation isn’t a butterfly. It’s the thing before you get to be pretty bug flying away. It’s huddling in the dark cocoon and then pushing your way out. It’s the messy work of making sense of your fortunes and misfortunes, desires and doubts, hang-ups and sorrows, actions and accidents, mistakes and successes, so you can go on and become the person you must next become.’

‘Transformation always involves the falling away of things we have relied on, and we are left with a feeling that the world as we know it is coming to an end, because it is.
When faced with great change – – in self, in relationship, in our sense of calling – – we somehow must take in all that has enclosed us, nurtured us, incubated us, so when the new life is upon us, the old is within us.’
