May we be fearless…from friends and enemies…from known and unknown…from night and day…May all the directions be our allies.

"To live and act with a robustness and determination which approaches joyful intoxication, while suspended in the space-time moment, book ended by the nothingness prior to one’s existence and the nothingness that ever looms as the threat of one’s own death, is a vital and visceral response to our "existential situation."

Murmuration: A flock of starlings. 

Full of wonder and amazement finding this short film again while searching for an image for this week’s show with Avivah Zornberg — The Transformation of Pharaoh, Moses, and God.

Beautiful.

Breathtaking.

"When it’s over, I want to say: all my life

I was a bride of amazement.

I was a bridegroom, taking the world into my arms. 

When it’s over, I don’t want to wonder

if I have made of my life something particular, and real.

I don’t want to find myself sighing and frightened, 

or full of argument.

I don’t want to end up simply having visited this world.”

~Mary Oliver

Drop the cloak of ‘knowing’ and take on the shawl of ‘not knowing’—-of being curious, intrigued and innocent.

It seems to me that we are at a point in history unlike anything that has ever been before. Life moves far more rapidly now than it ever did before. Think, for instance, of the huge acceleration in the rate of growth of facts, of knowledge, of techniques, of inventions, of advances in technology. It seems very obvious to me that this requires a change in attitude toward the human being, and toward his relationships to the world. To put it bluntly, we need a different kind of human being.

It is in our bodies that redemption takes place. It is the physicality of the crafts that pleases me: I learn through my hands and my eyes and skin what I could never learn through my brain.
