quirks

1 quirkiness

“Live from day to day, just from day to day.  If you do so, you worry less and live more richly.  If you let yourself be absorbed completely, if you surrender completely to the moments as they pass, you live more richly those moments.*

We’re all quirks in this universe.

Quirkiness is about being present to who we are and what we have and being true to living this out.  It is about being present to ourselves in a way that makes it possible to bring this powerfully into the moment.  Not to be pulled away wishing we were someone else, or feeling we need something more.

Then, amazing things are possible when people find each other in their quirkiness in a place of mutual surrender that makes it possible ‘for bringing a very diverse group to a profound place of connection with one another and with what it is we are her to do.’**

(*Anne Morrow Lindbergh, quoted in the Northumbria Community‘s Morning Prayer.)
