And I feel that we also have a compass deep inside us, an intuition, this feeling that we cannot explain, this sacred knowledge that tells us which way to go: It is the way of love. This sacred voice becomes louder through our experiences, and the lessons we learn in life and the mistakes we make.The famous Richard Rohr writes in his book The Universal Christ that “We do not need to be afraid of the depths and breadths of our own lives, of what this world offers us or asks of us. We are given permission to become intimate with our own experiences, learn from them, and allow ourselves to descend to the depths of things, even our mistakes…”
All there is to do for us to connect with this knowledge so we can benefit from it in our daily lives is to practice connecting to ourselves, the sacred knowing deep inside us. In daily life – and through prayer and meditation. If you like, join us for a Taizé prayer on Tuesday at 7 PM here in the sanctuary to feel this deep connection through silence and music and prayer. In January we will be starting a monthly meditative practice facilitated by Yonder Gillihan. And there are so many different ways to connect to your inside. It takes some time to figure out how.
