As much as life can get twisted out of shape, so do we have the opportunity to use that twist to add shape to our lives. New uses for old ideas, looking at something from a new point of view, seeing things with fresh eyes and newness of heart.
This summer, when all of Nature is pouring forth her beauty and bounty, forms of life just jump out at us, begging to be noticed or seen anew. With fresh eyes, open to the potential all around and focus, even momentarily, on what is and what can be in our lives.
Our classroom surrounds us with teachers, teachable moments and object lessons. The life force in everything--even what seem to be inanimate objects came from natural elements originally--screams at us to pay attention and learn and be blessed by our learning. Use that learning to embellish your life's journey, to enhance your path, and to glorify the existence of Spirit as the integral, connecting part of all Creation!
Spirit at the heart of everything, come alive in me this summer and make your presence known in every step and every breath. Wake me to Your brilliance all around me. In you I live and move and have my being!
