Life, Ponders, Questions

Do you get it yet?

The answer, I think, should always be no.

Like a good poem, or a meaningful song, you don’t ‘get’ it in the first experience. What about the 20th reading? Or the hundredth time you’ve heard it? How long until you get it; until you can check that box and move on to the next one?

The good, important, and real parts of life are revealed in receiving and becoming. Life is a layering process, not a destination. It is slow, continual, formative, deeply joyful, and infused with meaning.

How often is your purpose or posture set to figuring it out?

What changes if that’s no longer the goal? What happens as we allow our eyes to become opened and our ears widened? Where will we end up by practicing patience, repetition, and the refusal to settle into final answers or static understandings? I’m not sure. Maybe that’s exactly the point.
