TO HEAL OUR FRAGMENTED LIVES

I try to draw attention to it with everything I now do. A friend called me today, they had had a moment of clarity today in regards to the several adventures I have going on, and had to call me. She really nailed it.

 Our lives have become so fragmented and we suffer due to it. Many don't even know it. They assume they are doing okay. They look around them and play the comparison game. But the reality is still this......we've fallen out of our primal rhythm. And we'll never fit anywhere ease. The substitute rhythms just don't fit the rhythm of our soul. And after awhile, they alway win out over the soul's invitation to come home. At least for awhile.

 My friend has been brainstorming for awhile with regard to bringing all these adventures under one umbrella. I planted that seed of thought in her head awhile back ;-) just to get her thinking. Today she said something on these lines, "What you are doing is all about the well being of the whole individual in everyone you encounter. And all the things you are doing really do work together. You need to come up with something like a mission statement."

 I immediately sent her this. She apparently hasn't been on my website :-)

 There is a natural rhythm that pulsates through life. A rhythm Modern Culture has fallen out of touch with. If you slow down, listen, and watch, you will begin to pick up its presence everywhere in the natural world. When we fall out of touch with this nurturing rhythm, the depth of healing that can be found in the beauty and peace of this magnificent place, this garden, is missed in the rush. My hope is to offer here some things that might assist us in understanding a little better the importance of staying in touch with the ways of the garden.

 Most people's lives have become an exercise of fragmentation. This is not natural. It's not healthy. And none of this actually should be a surprise. How could it not end up this way once we became distracted from the enormity of this grand adventure we are caught up in, still, even while our minds have been highjacked and a deep amnesia has set in with regard to who we are, why we are here, what really brings meaning to this life, and where our place is in it all?

 The only thing left to do is admit it. And begin the journey home.

Here is a link to a beautiful video.

ADVENTURE IS CALLING
