Prompting 

What does compassion have in store for you this month?

What is love asking of you today?

What could empathy be offering you in this hour?

How might joy be given the reins in this minute?

Put your ears to your chest.

Learning

Simply put, learning is the space, the practice, the river, and the discipline that happens in between our knowing and unknowing.

It isn’t a journey into more knowing.

It’s the experience through what you know into what you don’t know.

And once you make it though the unknown you exit on the other side with a little more light, insight, and awe. And, hopefully, that new bit of light shines its rays on even more WONDERful questions to journey through.

Learning sounds a lot like faith doesn’t it?

What if we were more discontent with what we knew and more content with the mysterious places in our hearts and heads?

We would get somewhere.

Somewhere beautiful.

Somewhere our knowing would have never taken us.

Next

We naturally are always in thought about what’s next.

Sometimes it’s to prepare for what we know is coming.

Other times it’s simply our internal radar for knowing that something better could be around the corner. And it’s often an unknown better.

So read.

Study. 

Listen. 

Learn.

Only then will you be prepared for the known and the unknown of what’s next.

There’s no other way to be ready.
