The most important point to all of this, in my opinion, is that we learn to really listen to one another and not just wait for our turn to speak. We need to allow each side to express its thoughts and opinions.
I don’t know how to love as deeply as I am called to. Maybe if I show up, returning again and again to this body, if I follow movement into prayer, presence and communion, I can join the revolution at hand.
My mind your wandering, pulling, stubborn chatter dissipates focus, keeps me on the periphery. Distractions and diversions fill the space that could otherwise be simple and prayerful, a quieter refuge.
