    Daily Lectio Divina: Island-precepts

    Daily Lectio Divina: Island-precepts

    Repost of Episode 465







    In this episode of the guided lectio divina podcast, we’re concluding our series on Wise Lessons for Graceful Living using selections from Anne Morrow Lindbergh’s book Gift from the Sea.  This week’s theme is Growth and Space.







    Island-precepts, I might call them…. Simplicity of living, as much as possible, to retain a true awareness of life. Balance of physical, intellectual, and spiritual life. Work without pressure. Space for significance and beauty.  Time for solitude and sharing. Closeness to nature to strengthen understanding and faith in the intermittency of life…

    Daily Lectio Divina: It is only framed in space that beauty blooms

    Daily Lectio Divina: It is only framed in space that beauty blooms

    Repost of Episode 464







    In this episode of the guided lectio divina podcast, we’re continuing our series on Wise Lessons for Graceful Living using selections from Anne Morrow Lindbergh’s book Gift from the Sea.  This week’s theme is Growth and Space.







    It is only framed in space that beauty blooms….A tree has significance if one sees it against the empty face of sky.  A note in music gains significance from the silences on either side.  A candle flowers in the space of night.  Even small and casual things take on significance if they are washed in space….

    Daily Lectio Divina: The ebb and flow

    Daily Lectio Divina: The ebb and flow

    Repost of Episode 463







    In this episode of the guided lectio divina podcast, we’re continuing our series on Wise Lessons for Graceful Living using selections from Anne Morrow Lindbergh’s book Gift from the Sea.  This week’s theme is Growth and Space.







    We have so little faith in the ebb and flow of life, of love, of relationships.  We leap at the flow of the tide and resist in terror its ebb.  We are afraid it will never return….One must accept the security of the winged life, of ebb and flow, of intermittency.

    Repost of Episode 462







    In this episode of the guided lectio divina podcast, we’re continuing our series on Wise Lessons for Graceful Living using selections from Anne Morrow Lindbergh’s book Gift from the Sea.  This week’s theme is Growth and Space.







    Perhaps both men and women…may hunger…for the supposedly feminine qualities of heart, mind, and spirit–qualities which are actually neither masculine nor feminine, but simply human qualities that have been neglected.  It is growth along these lines that will make us whole….

    In this episode of the guided lectio divina podcast, we’re continuing our series on Wise Lessons for Graceful Living using selections from Anne Morrow Lindbergh’s book Gift from the Sea.  This week’s theme is Growth and Space.







    One tries to cure the signs of growth, to exorcise them, as if they were devils, when really they might be angels of annunciation…of a new stage in living when…one might be free to fulfill the neglected side of one’s self.  One might be free for growth of mind, heart, and talent; free at last for spiritual growth…

    Daily Lectio Divina: When we start at the center

    Repost of Episode 460







    In this episode of the guided lectio divina podcast, we’re continuing our series on Wise Lessons for Graceful Living using selections from Anne Morrow Lindbergh’s book Gift from the Sea.  This week’s theme is Solitude and Centerdness.







    When we start at the center of ourselves, we discover something worthwhile extending toward the periphery of the circle.  We find again some of the joy in the now, some of the peace in the here, some of the love in me and thee which go to make up the kingdom of heaven on earth….This is only a beginning.
