The View of a Sunflower

“The morning glories and the sunflowers turn naturally toward the light, but we have to be taught, it seems.”― Richard Rohr

“Faith is not for overcoming obstacles; it is for experiencing them—all the way through!”― Richard Rohr, Radical Grace: Daily Meditations

It takes time for things to mend, grow, bloom, bind up and be hemmed into the story of our life.
And the story is written each day.
In our choices.
In things we don’t choose.
Reactions and responses.
Where we put our attention.
Distractions, delays and detours.
Order. Disorder. Reorder.
We are never done.
Dynamic. Changing. Emerging.
In the waiting, wandering and the work, find joy, delight and ease.
Keep turning toward the light.
Opening up to unknowing, to mystery, to unfolding.
Recycle the boxes.

“God is always bigger than the boxes we build for God, so we should not waste too much time protecting the boxes.”― Richard Rohr, Everything Belongs: The Gift of Contemplative Prayer
