The shift to vessel
I’m learning to trust what comes. In between the fits and starts of understanding that flow — there is a way that we can experience ourselves as vessels, and there is a way we can experience ourselves as pillars. To feel fixed, structured, concrete — pillars — is to feel trapped as the world flows through and around us as it will. We each have our own way of experiencing this. Lord only knows I have mine. To shift toward the vessel is to shift toward a more direct experience.
Sometimes, life brings us to our knees. And there we have the opportunity.
The opportunity to say: Open me. Help me see how open I am. Help me be alive.
