      To Practice

      • Watch this Thomas Keating video on Human Evolution (10:40 minutes). What do you hear in this about our varying soils and the progression of our spiritual evolution? How does this inform your practice and your life?
      • A valuable resource: The Spiritual Journey series also provides a psycho-spiritual roadmap for the contemplative journey. This updated and free program with videos and narratives is available here on the website.

      You may wish to reread this week’s full reflection here:

      A member of our small contemplative group is in hospice care. She tells us that – when all is said and done – all that matters is to be love. So simple. So challenging. So sacred.

      Love emerges from how we care for each other through the suffering. Love is. Always.

      When Father Keating asked in this video clip “who are you?”, I sensed myself not being any of the soils; I am the seed. What I will become God already knows. Centering prayer is my consent to allow this seed of me to be broken open and become my expression of Divine Presence. Makes enduring life’s “seed opening” challenges easier to bear. <3 linda

      A Visio Divina this week spoke deeply into my being, a new depth to a Scripture passage that has been so meaningful to me over these past 50 + years. Today is the feast of Mary Magdalene, another of my faithful companions. Like in the image , Moses left hand , again, a new depth to ” My heart burns within me…”, two facial images appear, one the penetrating eyes of the Indwelling Spirit, another that of a wolf; I pause and allow it  to speak into my soul. Moses right foot helps me realize, that inner program of happiness has deep roots, when  I do brace myself, something equivalent to grinding my teeth. I continue to consent with the gestures of the body prayer of a few weeks back.
