Gam su l’tova

I know what Gam su l’tova (This is also for the good) means, I said. It doesn’t mean, “this painful situation is going to end up gratifying.” Sometimes things get better. Sometimes they get worse. Gam zu l’tova means that creation is good and the divine orderliness of creation is good and everything is good. Not for the good, just good.

The flower is always the bud’s undoing. Let go then. Step into the river lean into the wind let the strength of the earth rise through you. Watch your fingertips burst into bloom.

Wakening to Oneness – Our Very Substance

And I saw no difference between God and our substance, but, as it were, all God; and still my understanding accepted that our substance is in God, that is to say that God is God, and our substance is a creature in God. For the almighty truth of the Trinity is our Father, for he made us and keeps us in him. And the deep wisdom of the Trinity is our Mother, in whom we are enclosed. And the high goodness of the Trinity is our Lord, and in him we are enclosed and he in us.

– Julian of Norwich The Fourteenth Revelation, ch. 54
