Kindling the fire

The sunrise this morning reminded me of the Way of Contemplative Fire. Awe and wonder, acceptance without judgment (I can’t control the light and how it plays in the sky) and relationship at the heart of everything – do you see the smile? And if I am open I will be changed by the experience. And My Story and Our Story will be told and heard – and I and the communities I am part of will be changed – because we are all part of The Story
