The Universe is moving

I'm preparing for a retreat with my spiritual community, St. Hildegard's in Austin. Before we all show up we are to meditate on some quotes that have shaped the vision of the community. One I read last night rang with truth and hopefulness.

"There is one elementary truth--the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: The moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that never otherwise would have occurred...

Whatever you can do,
or dream you can do,
Begin it.
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.

Begin it now."

- Goethe

A small curious thing has been happening lately. Old friends have started calling and emailing. For both of us. Some people we haven't talked to in a long time. Lot's of them. It's wild. And very cool.

Committing to starting Join the Living has moved our internal intention even more toward community. Finding, building, strengthening, creating, community.

It's like all those scattered folks we have a spiritual connection with are feeling the tug. And picking up the connection again.

Just a bit of magic we've been noticing and enjoying.
