Gee…some signs of our times are good.
The wit and poignancy of this one made it memorable for me.
We seem to hear so many versions of truth these days that we are no longer sure of our own version. Although we grow in knowledge of our values and truths, in part we still respond to scripts given to us by parents, friends or doctrine.
Spiritual Direction assists us to become more sensitive to our feelings and reflect on our emotional responses. We find the things of importance, truth and meaning for ourselves.
As we journey inward and speak our truths, we begin to belong to ourselves in a fresh way.
At the heart of traditional stories, in scripture and in many indigenous cultures, is the sacredness of the land as the place of unique belonging and well-being.
Often in the spiritual journey people relate their experiences to that of homecoming to a place of belonging. They take possession of their inner landscape from which they draw forth their meaning and identity.
“Prevent Truth Decay” – trust and protect the sacred within. –
A reflection from Scripture: Jn 8:31-32 –
“If you make my word your home you will indeed be my disciples,
you will come to know the truth and the truth will set you free. ”
