eagle’s flight – tricia the third – 9/18/17

Somehow this third wedding was the hardest for me. My youngest daughter getting married felt like a hole opening up somewhere deep within me. She was leaving me. She had physically left some years ago. But this giving away to another was somehow a deep sorrow buried somewhere in me under the joy of seeing the results of our helping hands in her growing up.

eagle’s flight – Drawn in – 1/15/15

I’m in the process of reading through the book “Mansions of the Heart” by John Ashcroft. It’s a modern rendition of Teresa of Avila’s “Interior Castle” and St. John of the Cross’ “Dark Night of the Soul”. A small group of 3 of us have been having dinner together on Thursdays and talking about it, seeing where it resonates, and how we respond to Ashcroft’s comments. It’s been quite enjoyable to engage in such conversations each week. Here’s my take on the seven mansions which are stages in the spiritual journey, sometimes re-visited, each one never completely explored.

Warning – I’m using a bit more Christian specific language than I usually do. Replace “Christ” with “Love” or “The Word” if it’s easier for you. And on the “Holy 3” i.e. the “Trinity” … you’re on your own.

Let me know what strikes you. Continue reading

eagle’s flight – gracious generosity – 1/1/15

I’m being prompted to muse, meditate and pray around replacing greed with generosity. So, I’ve done a quick survey of the Christian scriptures on generosity and this is a first resultant poem. Interesting the blessings tied to generosity, some of which would appear foolish to current mindsets, but perhaps can be an antidote to the greed which leaves so many behind.

endings and beginnings – new – 3/14/13

I have grown to see that everything around me is bigger, deeper and wider than I’d imagined. I’ve noticed in the sciences (my favorite is physics) that just when the brightest are saying “we almost know everything”, is when all we know is preparing for a large, unexpected shift that opens new unexpected vistas. And as I’ve walked more deeply with God, learning to be loved and to love, which is the highest form of knowing, I’ve found the same things in myself. When I begin to feel settled, and like everything has been dealt with, another is spoken into my life that I come to love (sometimes slowly) as a key part of who I am. Continue reading
