here... now...


“ Sometimes the urgency of our hunger blinds us to the fact that we are already at the feast. To accept this can change everything: we are always home, never exiled. Although our minds constantly insist on seeing walls of separation, in reality most of the walls are mere veils. In every moment, everywhere, we are not even inches away from the divine presence.”

Definitely something to chew on. Always feel like I'm on the outside looking in from a long way off. This is a much better perspective.

very true. I try to remember that all my needs have been provided! God is good.

"Often we can't feel the presence of God because we don't let ourselves alone. I believe in a spirituatity of radical non-self interference and if we can just let ourselves be then we will find that in that act of acceptance that there is something really subversive. There is nothing so radical and subversive as an act of acceptance and sometimes when we call off our search and our hunger for God it is then that we allow ourselves to be found by the Divine Presence."
