A Canopy of Grace

“As humans, we are simply asked to walk in the mystery of our identities one day at a time, one step at a time, one question at a time. We are simply asked to know and be known with the whole of creation and our relatives in humanity. But to do that, we have to accept, challenge and process who we are along the way.” -Kaitlin Curtice, Native: Identity, Belonging, and Rediscovering God

I recently discovered that my new phone camera offers a .5 view. I happened to be looking up at trees and the canopy in my viewfinder was greater than what I was seeing. It felt like my phone camera’s view was coming from a place deeper within me and it made me gasp.

I remain a bit mystified by the experience and now that I’m writing about it, I want to go try it again. I’m not sure it will ever permeate my inner landscape in the same breathtaking way. I do love practices, though, that remind me there are other ways of seeing.

To know and be known

Love plumbs deeper, surprising

eyes of compassion
