This Morning -

It is a holy week, as are they all.  I learn today that this is a day of intimacy, and I feel that.  Of course, I feel that every day.  Messages come, swirls of love.  Yes, I am aware of the "news" and yet I am abundantly filled and nourished with Love.

I've been trying to isolate, to cohere a book, so I'm in my home, staying close to home, my inner home, and this one, too, a structure with surroundings of trees and roots.  What I see though is that even here the outside world enters in so many ways, so much beauty, so much to share.  There is no block - in and out are one.

I am re-reading Viktor Frankl's book, Man's Search for Meaning.  I'm opened in his words.

                      Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.

                    When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.

My guidance on the book I'm bringing forth is this:

The work of the eyes is done. Go now and do the heart-work on the images imprisoned within you.

- Rainer Maria Rilke

I lean into bringing my heart images forth.  I bend to receive, this moment, holy and intimate with love and the gentle, tender, and even fierce sharing of care.
