You may have noticed the snowflakes (or the random white dots cascading across the home screen). A good friend of mine thought that they would be a festive touch to the webpage…given the somewhat serious nature of most of this material. That and the fact that it’s a holiday season of sorts for certain cultures and traditions. So, I considered and chose to let there be snowflakes for the time being.
Funny thing, though, about the internet. This site is being visited daily by persons in far away places. Persons who may be unfamiliar with snowflakes or the traditions involved in this particular season. The snowflakes won’t mean a thing. Yet, how they ended up on this webpage is something we all have in common.
I believe that we are all seekers.
We enter search words and click on links because we are seeking something. We yearn to be let out, we long to let something in, and to feel connected. It’s very much like breathing. Taking in and letting out, interacting and exchanging are necessary processes of a healthy life.
We seek. That’s simply part of what it means to be human.
What we seek shapes and creates our enjoyment or our misery, our fulfillment or our emptiness. This is the truth that underlies our efforts to awaken to ourselves. We would seek to make our choices more aligned with what fulfills us than with what drains us. It’s not complicated. It does, however, require our attention.
If you haven’t yet read the book Owning Ourselves, I would ask you to consider going through it. It is a book for seekers written by a seeker who will always need to connect with you.
