Watch and Stay Found
“Minds don’t rest; they reel and wander and fixate and roll back and reconsider because it’s like this, having a mind. Hearts don’t idle; they swell and constrict and break and forgive and behold because it’s like this, having a heart. Lives don’t last; they thrill and confound and circle and overflow and disappear because it’s like this, having a life.” – Kelly Corrigan, Tell Me More
Allow it all.
The opposites, inconsistencies, contradictions, contrasts.
Thorns and brambles.
Desert and wilderness.
For in all of it lies beauty, wonder, awe, joy, grace, delight, delicious, reverence, holy, sacred.
Awaiting our attention, savoring and care.
Watch and stay found.
“Good Shepherd, You have a wild and crazy sheep in love with thorns and brambles. But please don’t get tired of looking for me! I know You won’t. For You have found me. All I have to do is stay found.”― Thomas Merton, A Book of Hours
