Trust is to human relationships what faith is to gospel living. It is the beginning place, the foundation upon which more can be built. Where trust is, love can flourish. [Barbara Smith]
We DO have to BEgin somewhere. And usually it is going to BE exactly Where We Are at Present. So I wonder… Where is it I find myself Right Now?! What is it that I want to build upon?! What CAN and DO I trust and truly BElieve in?!
These may sound adolescent and perhaps they are, but that is where I find the possibility of ANYthing to BE. Wherever it is I am and whatever it is that might BE called the conditions of Life at the moment.
It is precisely because neither individuals nor small groups can be fully self-sufficient that cooperation is necessary to human survival and flourishing. [Tom G. Palmer]
I don’t think I realise how much I BElieve there is limitation in self-sufficiency. I have worked hard to make myself self-sustaining and self-supporting, but self-sufficient is another giraffe entirely. Often it seems that without someone and something BEyond myself, BEyond my little Life, to contribute to and serve, Life is almost hollow.
We need a place in which we may flourish and be ourselves. [Timothy Radcliffe]
And Let It BE Now.
I love you, Currie
