A Contemplative Faith
Let the Earth Keep Silence
Follow PatheosProgressive Christian:
How true. Going for the extraordinary is so often an act of defensiveness and distraction that protects me from turning towards my fears, doubts, and anxieties with care and consciousness. Not to mention blinding me to the wonder of what is right here before me – the preciousness of this moment in it’s ordinary wonder.
I love the word “interfering”. So much of contemplative and meditative practice is discovering how to stop interfering with the Presence. Extraordinary efforts and experiences – interfere with getting the job done and getting the contracted self un-done.
Thank you for this.
