Click on the title for a gorgeous, poetic, resonant post from Toko-pa’s blog.
She is talking about ‘calling things towards us from a place of presence’, rather than ‘those places where we might be striving, mimicking, or falling into obligation’ – meeting our own being with reverence in each breath. The Yin energies of opening and receiving.
As she says:-
‘These ‘rituals of approach’ as John O’Donohue puts it, are what put us into right alignment with our way in the world: “When we approach with reverence, great things decide to approach us. Our real life comes to the surface and its light awakens the concealed beauty in things. When we walk on the earth with reverence, beauty will decide to trust us. The rushed heart and arrogant mind lack the gentleness and patience to enter that embrace.”‘
