"Grace"

A vision for November 1, 2021

I am healing...

From the inside out.


Every energetic particle

From the stardust that formed

The Universe

To the complex physical systems

That make me ME

I am healing...

From the inside out.


Tucked beneath the wings of

Mystery

Walking with the protection of

Angels

Breathing with the life of

Spirit Sophia

In my lungs

Living each day as a

Prayer

Yet failing each day because

I am HUMAN

I am healing...

From the inside out.


Grieving the loss of

Harvey

Who held my heartbeat in his

Warhorse chest

I begin again

With a new partner

We march empowered

Powerful

Paired

Human with 1200 pound animal

In Freedom

Living nothing less than the

Healing power of the incarnation

Together

The Eternal body of Christ.

For context on The Eternal Body of Christ, I offer the following excerpt from today's meditation by Franciscan Contemplative Fr. Richard Rohr:

"God, in Christ, is in all, and through all, and with all (see 1 Corinthians 15:28; Colossians 3:11). We call this the Universal Christ or another name for every thing—in its fullness. A spirituality of the Universal Christ is at the same time a creation spirituality. It allows you to start seeing your own soul imaged and given back to you in the soul of everything else. All of creation has soul! The Latin word for soul is anima, which became animal in English. This earth is participating in the mystery of redemption, liberation, and salvation. The whole creation is groaning in one great act of giving birth (see Romans 8:22). The whole thing is being reborn, re-covenanted, and realigned. Instead of seeing natural things as merely objects to be used, we must allow nature to enchant us."

From the Center for Action and Contemplation


Go behind the scenes and watch short videos of the process of artistic emergence. This is my own neurodivergence at play, as the grace of a life altering concussion awakened synesthesia and innate TheoArtistry where none existed before. These gifts have come with the challenge of healing and integration, but ultimately art calms my soul by giving form to the formless...so I may heal.

Amen
