Sunday - Saying Yes to the World

Every one of our mysterious and miraculous senses, including mind, is a way of knowing the world and ourselves.

We are larger than any one way of knowing, and can enjoy all of them as different incomplete and complimentary modes for appreciating what is, and for participating in what is with gusto and delight for the moments, timeless and fleeting, that we are here for.  We can rest in not knowing as well as in knowing, in the beauty of form and function and in their mystery, on any and every level that the senses and the mind, our instruments and our instincts, and our efforts to understand, deliver to us in any moment.
