Caring with Carefulness

“The words, “caring” and “carefulness” came up in conversation the other day. “Caring” has expansiveness about it; it reaches out beyond the self and engages another. Can a word be an extrovert? If so, “caring” is the latter. On the other hand, “carefulness” is more constrained; it proceeds with caution and needs encouragement to open up. The introvert here? I would say so.

Where do I Come From?

“There’s a current fascination with one’s lineage that thanks to technology and scientific research can be traced relatively easily.

Where you were acutely in presence without need to retreat into the past or to move forward into the future? And why did this all suddenly happen?

How Much is Too Much?

“Those of you who look to help others be healthier and happier can sometimes run aground.  It’s not the physical lifting involved here that I’m referring to but the openness of our serving that renders you vulnerable psychologically and spiritually. Your language of genuineness and sincerity can be misunderstood – perhaps even taken advantage of to the point where you need to draw back to contemplate, rest and refresh before venturing out...
