A key phrase springs out from my lectio: when we take a clean look at what we see – stop being strangers to ourselves, we increase the number of ways we can respond to what arises”. Though this has been one of the most difficult years of my life, it’s also been an energizing experience of detachment from myself to give my all. “That clean look” has been possible by my consenting to the work of the Indwelling Spirit. Tuesday I celebrated my birthday. So much for which to be grateful. I simmer in non-dual gratitude.
