We are in the center of a dark place, compassed about with a hard shell. We know there is potential—potency—in us. So we usually run about in here, sending out roots and shoots here and there and finding ourselves held in. We could meet the shell—and find beyond it a larger world, and beyond that a larger world, and more. This is where we are today: a germ of a seed, with a nourishing world about us, which we think to consume. But if we look, but if we look! There is a larger world still, and it is sometimes called heart, or another person—mother, father, spouse, child. Beyond is a larger world still: among, community, will, intention, possibility. And beyond that even larger: source, ground of being, the threshold of plenum, one. And out there within that, reaching out from there, from hearnow, are hands: our hands, working, loving, giving with abandon, repairing and perfecting the world, light-making.
