Birth

24x36BornAgain-Unframed-2From Wendy Farley’s The Wounding and Healing of Desire: “Contemplation is the birth of ourselves. It asks us, “Do you want to be healed? Do you really want to be healed?” If we assent to the pathway of healing, even with only a little part of ourselves, we engage various practices and believe, expect, anticipate various things. We participate, but we cannot control or even fully understand what happens within us and in the world around us. Here, too, we ride the storm of birth and love the child that is born of us.”
