We let our days fall away like empty shells and miss all the treasure
This week’s blog comes as a simple meditation coming out of a quote from John O’Donahue’s book, Eternal Echoes. His words are poetry and are wrapped in invitation…
Each day is a secret story woven around the radiant heart of wonder.
We let our days fall away like empty shells and miss all the treasure.
Perhaps one or more of the following questions resonate with you and you want to spend some time sitting in the stillness of prayer to respond.
It may be helpful to sit comfortably and breathe deeply allowing yourself to come to stillness before continuing. Read John’s words slowly a few times and let them settle into you heart.
What is my story, current or past? What does it tell me in this here and now moment?
What do I feel when I reflect on being a “radiant heart of wonder?”
Does life feel as if it’s falling away and I’m missing it?
Is there anything God is intviting me to change in my life in order to be more present to it?
What treasure is being offered to me by God that I may be missing?
