Embracing more fluidity

Dear Ones,

Not long ago, we started a fresh dance; one that will take us into another 365-days journey.

We climbed the mountain of 2020 and here we are, past the peak, envisioning new possibilities.

What will 2021 be made of?

That is still a mystery, isn’t it, as we polish aspects of renewal and rebirth in our lives.

If there is one thing I can feel though, it is a higher level of fluidity in the way we connect with folks. Spiritual fluidity if you will; more numerous and more significant synchronicities along the way.

I have experienced this a few times since the beginning of the year—a more profound sense of flow, of connection, with another human being.

A few words that I read a few days ago made me wonder about the importance and sweetness of relations, moving into this new age.

These words came from Martin Buber, the Austrian-Jewish philosopher.

In I and Thou, he wrote,

“In the beginning is relation,” as if revising the opening words of Genesis.

Author Roger Lipsey added a few comments:

“Buber writes that we inevitably categorize one another, find uses for one another, become again for one another “a He or a She, a sum of qualities” and lose awareness of the uncoercive dialogue at the very base of relationship. But the encounter of I and Thou can be renewed.”

I personally believe 2021 is the year where this renewal will flourish, moving us further away from any possible categorization.

About new desert

Nurturing the Gift of Seeking is about a spiritual "destination," a journey within, a new beginning, that eventually takes us where we are meant to arrive. Some call it Home, yet I am not sure what Home means, and where it is. Enjoy the journey, dear Ones! On this journey, what matters, first and foremost, is our seeking spirit. And the seed of perseverance--or faith, if you will. Happy journey, dear fellow Sisters and Brothers!
