Thick with Possibility

“Earth is so thick with divine possibility that it is a wonder we can walk anywhere without cracking our shins on altars.”― Barbara Brown Taylor, An Altar in the World: A Geography of Faith

“The treasure we seek requires no lengthy expedition, no expensive equipment, no superior aptitude or special company. All we lack is the willingness to imagine that we already have everything we need. The only thing missing is our consent to be where we are. Whoever you are, you are human. Wherever you are, you live in the world, which is just waiting for you to notice the holiness in it.” – Barbara Brown Taylor, An Altar in the World: A Geography of Faith

Amidst ordinary days, beauty and joy reside.
Detached from circumstances.
Separate from perfect conditions.
In storms and in calm.
Noticing, paying attention, pausing lead to this space and place.
A depth, peace and expanse available to all in abundance.
We are held and hemmed in divine possibility woven through each day.
Get out of your own way.
Open your eyes a anew.
Altars, sacred, holy ground beneath and before you.

“What is saving my life now is the conviction that there is no spiritual treasure to be found apart from the bodily experiences of human life on earth. My life depends on engaging the most ordinary physical activities with the most exquisite attention I can give them. My life depends on ignoring all touted distinctions between the secular and the sacred, the physical and the spiritual, the body and the soul. What is saving my life now is becoming more fully human, trusting that there is no way to God apart from real life in the real world.”― Barbara Brown Taylor, An Altar in the World: A Geography of Faith
