Let the beauty we love be what we do
We are born fully formed with everything we need – our seeds of true Self, our birthright gifts, our temperament. We come with a sense of connectedness to everything around us. And then the deformation begins.
Our wholeness becomes hidden, We lose sight of our gifts. We misunderstand our temperament. The seeds of true Self go dormant as they recede from the light and nurture they need to grow. We see ourselves as separate from everything around us.
This book offers the stories of 21 remarkably diverse individuals who share the desire to live into their birthright wholeness. The individuals who make up our Writers Circle of Trust made the decision to live divided no more – and that decision often brought them to a retreat, seeking safe space and community for the inner journey. The individuals in this Circle have been invited to share their stories, to go public with their decision to live an undivided life, to name and embrace their ongoing journey, with its shadows and light, stops and starts, bridges and potholes. These are first person narratives which have emerged from the writing of Rumi, 13th century Persian poet, theologian, and mystic, Let the beauty we love be what we do. There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground.
