Sometimes we find ourselves in a neutral place: we’re neither happy nor sad, neither challenged nor triumphant. Where are we to find spiritual growth in these times? Just as sleep is the time when short term memories are processed into long term storage, so too can the quiet times be when we process recent growth or awakenings into the core of our being. A walk in the woods, or a time spent apart in quiet, simple Be-ing can do much for this process. So listen to the birds, feel the gentle breeze, gaze at clouds, and process what we’ve learned into who we are Be-coming. For transformation we give thanks. Blessed Be, and Amen.
