Think back twenty years ago.
Think about how you saw yourself, the world, your relationships, your dreams, and so forth.
Personally, almost every fact that I held so dearly twenty years ago now feels more like the dandelions children act like they own and then watch in awe as the wind takes them away.
All of the notes I’ve taken lead me to know two things: 1) There are fewer rules than we were taught. And 2) The languages that are used to explain things to us are far less useful than the actual languages that can speak and communicate to life, relationships, love, faith, and vocation.
If you’re going to ask anything of yourself today, ask for your heart to be expanded. Ask for the capacity to behold something far more mysterious and beautiful than you have ever imagined. “Taste and see” are words of experience, not of explanation.
Naturally, as the vase of your heart expands the garden of life blooms and blooms and blooms and blooms to fill the container.
