A Way In

The month of Av

The month of Av calls:

Pay attention,


Take Notice:

When we are not able to see ourselves in each other

We bury our capacity for compassion.

When we insist on being right

We bury our capacity for relationship.

When we hold onto habits, routines and structures

That no longer serve the highest good

We bury our capacity for transformation.


Listen well.


To the inner stirrings of the heart,

To the voices and needs of others.

Listen well to the calls of the earth

And to the songs and silences of the Mystery.


So as to remember

That within the many shines the One.


So as to find the willingness

To turn anger, fear and resentment

Into compassion, forgiveness and love.
