Footprints in the Windsm # 742

Life seeks to interhere. When life meets life it does not take in like a machine. Rather, it meets, it eats, it encompasses, it seeks to unite with. Children in schools are not funnels to receive what the teacher pours over them; rather, they seek to learn, to take in and make their own, to use and become a part of the new, to absorb and comprehend and internalize and assimilate what they have heard. It is an organic process, not mechanical. Life wants to weave itself to all it sees, touches, hears. This intertwining, this one-making is in fact what theologians and philosophers call love.

Please pass it on.
