A generous person

As we stand on such thresholds, life itself is commissioning us to move onto a new stage of our Becoming. Something at the core of our being is urging us forward … as surely as the onset of labour and the breaking of the waters commission the expectant mother to begin the process of birthing.*
Margaret Silf

Nothing open up the mind like the glimpse of new possibility.**
John O’Donohue

If we are to be known for something,
Why not generosity,
Not only does it benefit others with
listening and
openness and
faith and
time and
words, but
takes us deeper into life-in-all-its-fullness.
In her foreword to Jean Houston’s A Mythic Life,
Mary Catherine Bateson describes Houston as
an “omnivorous learner”^ –
Which feels like a very good place to begin.
