 Week7

Sometimes leaving the wilderness requires time for reentry with moments spent in thoughtful awareness. The road home affords a chance to enter into moments of discernment to decide what insights to bring back, or dismissing thoughts delegated to remain amongst the leaves, dedicated to autumn’s compost.  Thoughts discarded as unimportant can sometimes be more insightful than easy revelations manufactured by beauty. Seven weeks in the wilderness, nights alone with nature’s breath, the pulse of the earth echoing our secret respiration can teach, and inspire, bringing new resolve to make known guarded truths kept under lock and key. Time in the wilderness is more than renewal, or a chance for the hum of civilization to take a rest. The wilderness shouts blatant truths. The wilderness with its truth is a gift offering a chance to be fully alive.

What does being fully alive mean to you, and how might this be made known away from the truths found in nature?

Darkness

In the wilderness when the moon is hidden, and clouds cover the stars, darkness is no longer an aid to beauty, or a means to appreciate the night…it can become an adversary. An idyllic location, a lyrical blend of nature during the day can turn into a menacing oracle of gloom when darkness eats away at the security of the day. Darkness fuels insecurity. Darkness feeds doubt. Darkness crumbles hope to the extent that any remaining positive prayers speak to the return of security founded in the warming rays of the sun; the morning’s yawn of promise. Darkness, however, can echo’s our spirit’s ability for buoyancy because without darkness, brightness can deplete all energy expelled during the day. Darkness can be scary, but it can also expose a deeper meaning towards a fuller, more balanced existence.

What does darkness, in all its forms, say to you?
