Every day has a moment of eternity trying to reach you.
“Imagine each day, despite the news on CNN, despite the devastation of storms, despite all the suffering in the world which we have to acknowledge as part of our witnessing of the world that every day has a moment of eternity trying to awaken before us. This is important as we go through these dark times. I don’t think there’s a quick fix for this, but we have to be connected to the eternal or the divine, whatever you want to call it, the ecstatic. If we don’t have that touch of the eternal that awakens this deep connection to life’s capacity to renew itself all the time, we can get lost in the darkness of what’s going on and feel discouraged which really means to lose heart and to lose spirit. So, I say it to myself a lot, “Every day has a moment of eternity waiting for me, waiting for you. Let’s make sure we catch that moment.”
