Lingering at Thresholds,#mystery,#unknown,#spiritualjourney,#spiritualdirection,#embracebeauty

As a spiritual director I often encounter moments with my directees of lingering together at thresholds of mystery and discovery. As we journey into unknown territory we may find glimpses of divine presence and connection.


In today's busy world these lingering moments can be few and far between, thus the growth of stress and anxiety we have noticed. Perhaps consider setting aside a few moments today to just be in the moment noticing beauty with gratitude.


I would like to share a small section from a book I am currently reading by John O" Donohue called, "The Invisible Embrace Beauty."


" Within us are depths that keep watch. These are depths that no words can trawl or light unriddle. Our neon times have neglected and evaded the depth - kingdoms of interiority in favor of the ghost realms of cyberspace. Our world becomes reduced to intense but transient foreground. We have unlearned the patience and attention of lingering at the thresholds where the unknown awaits us. We have become haunted pilgrims addicted to distraction and driven by the speed and color of images."


How does this passage speak to you today? Consider reading it out load slowly several times listening for a word or phrase that is calling to you.


Blessings my friends!
