Spiritual Rhythms of Life for Today

Storm clouds gather on the horizon, as a howling tempest blows it way into one’s life. Battered around to and fro pushes the limits of security and patience. A turning inside, away from the blustery blasts, only leads to isolation and the stark realization that this is all too big for us. Self-centered selves never find shelter, as this belongs to those who admit their need of help from the Infinite Other, who gives the possibility of a dramatic change of orientation and destiny. The unending mystery of community, in this context, offers freedom from the perils of selfhood, without leaving us selfless.
