Seeking Wisdom...


I was reading my friend Kris' blog. She is returning to a monastary where she had gone previously in search of peace and I think maybe wisdom. It made me think about how we all are seeking wisdom in our day to day lives. Looking for inner peace and guidance. A ladybug or a conversation with God. The feelings and signs that cause us to veer in one direction verses another. Maybe we find it in a book or in our intuition. It is a constant lifelong journey. Many times we find it in each other.

great post....it comes in time to have quiet reflection, prayer, reading, music and just 'being'! Sadly, we all don't get enough time to do this....

Well said.

I have that exact quote about wisdom on a paperweight. It is a constant reminder to me that I must never stop questioning, exploring, growing and reflecting.

I call my blog A Mystical Life b/c I do connect with my spirit, my path, the universe, my god daily. I see it everywhere. In others, sometimes cleverly disguised. In ladybugs, in meditation, im music, on TV. My world speaks to me loud and clear.
Boy, that was a rather profound and vulnerable purge.
Ehhhem.... I feel better now, a little naked, but better.

I seek out wisdom in those who have the experience. Why do you think I come here. *wink*. Makes me feel good all over.

Wow, I was away so missed this beautiful post. For me, I think I didn't know what I was seeking excpet solitude. And I learned in a homily by this incredible priest what solitude really means. It's not a all about having "alone" time- it's about being completely in the presence of God. What I came back with was far greater than I could have imagined, and truthfully I didn't want to leave and find myself really questioning the direction of my life. Mepkin Abbey is the first place that has felt like home since the marriage ended and my mom died. Somehow I'll muster up the energy to write about it, but words will no doubt diminish the experience, which is so internal.

Anyway. I'm rambling. This post is beautiful though and I thank you for thinking of me within it.
