Just in from Pastor Dave:
Body-knowing – Sep. 20, 2021
“In the ancient language of Wisdom, the [physical] moving center carries the “affirming force”; its natural aptitude is for reaching out, embracing, making contact. The intellectual center carries the “denying force”; its natural aptitude is for reasoning, doubting, making fine discriminations. In their own right, these discriminatory skills are legitimate and profoundly necessary, built into the structure of the human mind itself. But in terms of the spiritual journey, trying to find faith with the intellectual center is something like trying to play a violin with a saw: it’s simply the wrong tool for the job.”
–Cynthia Bourgeault, The Wisdom Way of Knowing (Josey-Bass, 2003), p. 31
Listen to the body, dance the daily dance, time is brief, and love the only truth.
