“In water that departs forever and forever returns, we experience eternity.” ~Mary Oliver, Upstream
This reminds me so much of a recent quote journaled from Cynthia Bourgeault: “What kind of water might be the continuous source of its own replenishment?”
“Receptive, flowing people are the ones who change the world and transform history.

What have I outgrown? A question posed by Artist Kristen Gilje as she shared how Guild Founder Richard Caemmerer continues to challenge her.
Conversion is a continuous and lifelong process. Conversions proceed layer by layer, relationship by relationship, here a little, there a little—until the whole personality, intellect, feeling and will have been recreated by God. ~John Westerhoff
