Thank you for sharing this insightful passage.
Synergy seems to be bottom up manifestation of surprising and engaged energy and what is holding all of it up is unknown to me. And I tend to think of all unknown/unknowable wholesomeness that is experienced as Grace.
As a caretaker for my father who moved on, I found the strength to be present and not sleep for many days simply because I could connect to him. It was not my effort, just like the nurse shares in this passage.
Beautiful..Many times, when I'm under open skies with plants and trees, the distinction between working and resting disappears for hours together. Also reminds me of a friend who used to say with a wink "I don't want to rest and rust because I'm always at rest".
I would like to do a "Practice of the Week" based on TOW. I've done it infrequently in the past and it had been rewarding whenever I did - would like to make it consistent.
"to choose how you construct meaning from experience" - that is something I would like to take away for practice this week.
Thanx for yet another good thought.
I find it hard to understand the following 2 apparently contradictory statements towards the end though.
"It doesn’t have to be served with career, life meaning, goals, and all that. It’s about each moment, each moment, each moment."
This is indeed one of the best thoughts I've read..not because it rings "true" for me or because I'm a big fan of JK but because it leads to very intense refelection of what it means to "be true" for me.
The pattern I have seen in my limited experience is that JK's words seem to people who have already been on some journey of self-discovery. To this category of people, phrases like being vs becoming have a meaning from experience instead of a piece to be fitted in some JK jig-saw logic puzzle.
Thank you for the thought and discussions.
