Opening to Reality
[We] will not perish for want of information;
but only for want of appreciation … What we lack is not
a will to believe but a will to wonder…. Reverence is one
of [our] answers to the presence of mystery … Abraham Heschel
“I’ve had to learn to lean into all I don’t understand, accepting that I am changed by what I hear. In all, it’s been an exciting journey, one that’s made me more alive.
With each trouble that stalls us and each wonder that lifts us, we are asked to put down our conclusions and feel and think anew.”
