“There is no liberation on earth like knowing that one is of no consequence. It sets the heart suddenly free from a thousand shackles.”~ Katherine Trevelyan, Fool in Love

How free are you?

Curious attentiveness

…Rest your weary eyes from so much looking,
your tired feet from so much wandering,
your aching heart from so much hoping.

…Give up the weight of knowing,
for the reverence of quiet attention
and curiosity… ~ Christine Valters Paintner

How do you become attentive?

Green edges

“The hard thing when you get old is to keep your horizons open. The first part of your life everything is in front of you, all your potential and promise. But over the years, you make decisions; you carve yourself into a given shape. Then the challenge is to keep discovering the green growing edge.” ~ Howard Thurman

Where is your green edge?

Burning bush

“The bush burned, was alive with flame and was not consumed. Why? Isn’t it because, as a bush, it was perfect? It was exactly as a bush is meant to be. A bush certainly doesn’t have the opportunity for prideful and selfish choices, for self-destruction, that we human beings do. It is.“ ~ Madeleine L’Engle, A Circle of Quiet

How do you get to the place where you are not consumed?
