Resting on Air

RestingOnAir-150x150Albatrosses ride the wind for vast distances, staying aloft for most of the year. They manage this amazing feat not by the strength of their giant wings, but rather by their ability to find and remain in air currents that will carry them where they wish to go. They relax into the place where they need to be, and allow themselves to be carried.

When have you experienced that sense of being able to relax into the current of your life?

Rhythm of Life

RhythmOfLife-150x150There is always rhythm present if you care to notice – in the tapping of keys on the keyboard, in the slap of shoes on the sidewalk, in the rustle of leaves or the hum of insects or the whir of an oscillating fan.

If rhythm is always present in life, how will you find ways to dance along?

You’ll Never Walk Alone

YoullNeverWalkAlone-150x150Although this man appears to be entirely solitary on his walk by the beach, he is accompanied not only by the unseen bugs, birds and other wildlife that are always present, but also by the people, living and dead, who are with him in his thoughts.

Who walks unseen with you today?

The Larger Community

TheLargerCommunity-150x150“The natural world is the larger sacred community to which we belong. To be alienated from this community is to become destitute in all that makes us human. To damage this community is to diminish our own existence.”
– Thomas Berry

How does connection with nature make you more deeply human?

The Same River

TheSameRiver-150x150You can’t, we are told, step in the same river twice. The water is always moving, and life never holds still so that we can freeze the moment. But you can float with the river, holding to your same river by moving along with it, keeping the moment by releasing yourself to move as it moves.

What helps you to “go with the flow”?
