"Let's have a merry journey, and shout about how light is good and dark is not. What we should do is not future ourselves so much. We should now ourselves. "NOW thyself" is more important than "Know thyself." Reason is what tells us to ignore the present and live in the future. So all we do is make plans. We think that somewhere there are going to be green pastures. It's crazy. Heaven is nothing but a grand, monumental instance of future. Listen, now is good. Now is wonderful." ~ Mel Brooks

Weekly Gratitude

So much to be grateful for this week. Play silks were dyed, eggs were colored, snuggles were had. This weekend also marked our twice a year "Retreat Weekend" within our community. We live in an Intentional Quaker Community and have the great fortune of having an amazing lady come into our Community and guide us through these powerful retreats. This weekend was all about "Nurturing Our Spirits". Using Quaker process and practice we were able to honor that which is in all of us.......unconditional love. We held each other so tenderly and with reverence. We were all humbled and felt safe within our vulnerable spaces to allow for much healing. Through laughter and tears, anger and heartache, our lives for the past few days have been transformed. We are all keenly aware of what it is we need to honor the Spirit working through us, within our lives, within others. We have begun to figure out more deeply what it means to know the Spirit as it lives in us, how we can apply the gifts of the Spirit more justly into our lives outside of ourselves. It was such an honor and I am so grateful for spending the time with and loving even more deeply the other six households that make up our Community. What an amazing time and place to live in.
