‘The first half of life is building a strong container or identity, the second is finding the contents.’*
We are seekers and life is about seeking.
Two great practices for developing our ability to seek: solitude and silence.
When we hone the skills of seeking, the closest, most familiar, and mundane things – or so we have seen them – become places of wonder and fullness.
‘Genuinely living for something, day after day, is much more valuable than looking for a blaze of glory at the end.’**
