For about the last eight months I have been finding myself less and less well. Physically, spiritually and emotionally things were just going downhill.
My wife suggested that I needed to re-read and think upon the spiritual masters that have made a difference in my life.
I took her suggestion and in the last week things have started to improve. Taoist Tai Chi is beginning to return health to my body. Walking and sitting meditations are allowing me to focus my mind where it needs to be. I had stopped being mindful and intentional about my journey and I have paid the price.
Recovery will take a while but it is happening. The beautiful flowers that grace this blog were found in the deep shadows and undergrowth of our garden/temple.
As hard as it sometimes is for me to remember…
I have faith that in the darkest deepest shadows of your or my spirit such beauty is also to be found!
