Sacred time -

The word Kairos comes to mind tonight - Kairos.  Perhaps it is because I am tired, weary almost to a dizzying point, too tired to defend.  That is the place of surrender, the opening where something new might enter in.  My depth of feeling is a combination of things, a knowing that the year gathers so spiritually this week, Passover for some, Easter for others, and for me, all of it is a bouquet gathered, as i gather flowers and branches from my yard to fill various vases.  I feel full, and part of that is knowing many I know suffer, and also knowing blessings, so many blessings.  This time feels profound, steeped.

I learn that today is Maundy Thursday, the day that Jesus washed the feet of his disciples.  I wonder how often we bend to wash the feet of another, to soothe at the deepest levels those who surround us, those we love, and perhaps those with whom we struggle.

I helped a friend today to describe her work, Essential Motion.  I came to her work many years ago.  The idea is to move with and from an inner knowing, and to be witnessed.  There are many modalities to explore. There was a time when I couldn't do enough of them.  I was hungry, and then, one day I was full.  It was enough, and yet, still I move between sensory awareness, Rosen, and Essential Motion, while knowing one can simply pause, sit and hold one's own hand, one's own foot, or the hand or foot of another, and in that, there is a connecting that's shared.
