TODAY'S GEM OF GRACE IN THE GRAY AREAS

"I am that to which I gave short shrift and that to which I attended. I am my descents into darkness and my rising again into the light, my betrayals and my fidelities, my failures and my successes. I am my ignorance and my insight, my doubts and my convictions, my fears and my hopes."

                                                                              (Parker Palmer, On the Brink of Everything:
                                                                               Grace, Gravity, and Getting Old)

Today's Gem of Grace in the Gray Areas

Fear does not stop death.
It stops life.
And worrying does not take away tomorrow's troubles.
It takes away today's peace.

Skyward Glances

Skyward glances
Moonlight dances . . . .
Stars’ spectre
Smiling, shining
Heaven’s blanket, intertwining
Foretell tomorrow’s clearest sky
Seekers bend their backs and sigh
Wish upon that bright North Star
Oh to take me up so far
Promise?

Today's Gem of Grace in the Gray Areas

“It seems to me that our karma these days is to explore In more depth than ever before the two sides of letting go.  On the one side is the shedding of excess emotional garbage:  the abandonment of lost causes, the downgrading of expectations, and the acceptance of the losses that time brings.  On the other side is the letting go that enables us to move beyond those losses.  Reduced expectations, for example, free up the imagination for new experiments.  Getting through the bad times enables us to take our measure and focus on what really matters going forward.”
