Bits & Pieces of Inspiration
"In order to fully live our spiritual path, we cannot leave out any part of ourselves or our experience; every single part of who we are and what we do has to be included. It is in recognizing the mystic we always were rather than in mimicking the pious practices of our faith that we discover the meaning beneath the meaning that has always been calling us." What causes you to be aware of the meaning beneath the meaning? Begin to incorporate your own innate spiritual responses into your daily practice.
From yesterday's meditation in my favorite quiet time book.
This has been a bizarre winter break. I'm ready to get back into a routine of some sort, but honestly not quite ready to go back.... I've enjoyed so much this time with Sean and Olive, lazy days lounging around, scouring antique shops and little odd stores here and there. Long runs in the cold, hours catching up on Big Love, time spent talking with friends, reading and painting away my heartache~ it's all been quite simple and needed. This morning I was very tempted to crawl into a cubby much like this little girl. It was all I could do to drag myself out of bed at 5:30 this morning and go running! Once I was moving, things were all good, but it was a rough wake up call!
I am coming into this new year with open eyes, open mind and open heart. I wish the same for you. -e
