It happens frequently at the Grunewald Guild that we have folks stop by who once were part of the Guild in some way. Often they have friends or family along who look at the place with puzzled curiosity. I’ve been wondering… what is it that calls people back? It seems bigger than nostalgia.
That’s what I was pondering and journaling when I realized that the page was an unusually close reflection of the breakfast table at which I was sitting, a lovely table set for Jim and me by a dear friend.
From Richard Rohr’s Daily Meditation: “It was good, it was good . . . it was very good.” ~Genesis 1:10-31 “What cosmic hope and direction we were offered!”
“The heart’s perception is pattern oriented. It perceives the whole and then discerns its own place within that whole.” ~Cynthia Bourgeault
“Everything is in relationship with everything else.” ~Richard Rohr
It seems that even the very pages of my journal are supporting this message.
Joy sweeps us off our feet and together we dance.
Over the next week I plan to share journaling images that were part of last year’s Journaling through Advent experience, images that were created and never shared. I’m in the process of gathering another group this year. Might you be interested in joining me? Check it out here: http://www.grunewaldguild.com/upcoming/journaling-through-advent.
