A Deeper Mission

A Deeper Mission

There is a deeper mission as my heart goes about doing what it has been designed to do…and it is always in the direction of fulfilling the fullness of living…either in the great expression of love or in the intimate confrontation with suffering…for they exist side by side…this is the constitution of wholeness…this is what belonging is all about…this is what it is to be fully human…and I find it beautiful…brokenness, shattering, yet still complete in its composition though the form has been radically changed…this shattering is what is transforming…this is what expands our sense of self…and this is what makes living challenging as well as rewarding…
