Life Worth Living

bolinas_may_2014_055

Dive deeply into the miracle of life and let the tips of your wings be burnt by the flame, let your feet be lacerated by the thorns, let your heart be stirred by human emotion, and let your soul be lifted beyond the earth.

– Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan, Call of the Dervish

Weekly Photo Challenge: Carefree

How many of you remember that wonderful song by Gordon Lightfoot, “Carefree Highway?”

Carefree highway, let me slip away on you.
Carefree highway, you seen better days.
The mornin’ after blues from my head down to my shoes –
Carefree highway, let me slip away,
Slip away on you.

Carefree Highway, let me slip away on you

Carefree Highway, let me slip away on you

In case you’d like to hear the song,

On What Is My Life Built?

Today’s Advent reading is from the 7th chapter of the Gospel of Matthew

Anyone who hears my words and puts them into practice is like the wise one who built a house on rock.
-Matthew 7:24

We have recently witnessed the ravages of Sandy, and our hearts go out to those who are still without shelter as winter is upon us. We are reminded of the precarious nature of life. And truly, there is no way to insulate and protect ourselves from tragedy whether we build our homes on sand or rock. So how do we build our inner lives? And how do we reach out to others when tragedy strikes? On what are our lives built?

This home is precariously perched on a bluff above the Pacific Ocean below. How is my life situated?
