This morning meditation called me, not as something on my to-do list but like food or water or the rising sun and setting moon. I meditated and went outside in the dark to water plants. The moon was still up in the west and now this first day of autumn, the sky is radiant with sun pouring through.
I honor the day with these words of Br. David Steindl-Rast:
|In each of us there is a spark that can reverse the trends of violence and depression spiraling within us and in the world around us. By setting in motion the spiral of gratefulness we begin the journey toward peace and joy.|
