Wholeness......equals deep love!
Normally I offer my own thoughts and reflections but today I offer this amazing meditation as what I would truly like to achieve in my life. ......wholeness. For many years I worked at trying to let the inside and outside of myself be the same. I think in many ways I achieved that, and can honestly say that I do know how I feel and often am able to articulate it. I have also come to understand that life is to be lived to its fullest, as Christ says "abundantly"! I have come to a point in my life that I realize the importance of living the messiness and learning the lessons that life offers up....Richard Rohr (Franciscan Monk) offers this understanding of life in his meditation for New Years.. I feel that Richard's words are worth repeating here in order to take them to a deeper level in my being. I honestly do want to become whole.....not necessarily in a physical way.....and I want to begin the second half of life.....accepting this understanding of the purpose for life and living allows me to know that with or without my disease I can attain the fullness of life. .....it is not dependent on how long I live or how perfect my life....it is attitude I take to life and what I see as the meaning and purpose of it.....to love deeply and to see everything as whole!!!!.
