Good Grief?

I’m reading and sharing an article by Patrick O’Malley on the timeless, less-than-perfect process of grief.

It offers permission, and fits with my experience (so far anyway) in grief and healing according to the work of the soul. Not against any timetable or linear path – ideal or reality; not judging “it” or me as something bad that needs to be sped-up or escorted back into the closet of denial and darkness.

I hope it brings comfort and healing in your reading, and I share this here with love.

The Way of Understanding Nothing

Bird in a Wire Thumbnail © twyatt 2015Imagine where we would be.

What histories of hopeless reliance
upon only those things seen
with our own eyes,
and in our own time,
if it were not for our imaginations
and the visions,
of those before
and with us now.

Surrounded by the light of Christ
and loving power of the Holy Spirit.

Pay Attention.
Pay attention to your soul
with the currency of consciousness.

Allow yourself to be led into the meadows,
the city,
at work,
play,
stillness
and community.

And return again to your evening.
In prayers and thankfulness,
celebrate a day of unexpected struggles and gifts,
sprung from One Constant
of Higher Purpose.

Bird in a Wire © twyatt 2015And rest.
In understanding nothing,
everything is possible.
