Distillation: Conversation 2010 Day Three

…again, with thanks to participant Tom Soma for a creative way to summarize a very rich day of insight and exchange…
A Williamsburg Onion Vow
Layers and layers
of questions.

As we peel,
we are centered
by both asking
and answering.

At the center,
if we are honest,
we find ourselves
and if we are fortunate,
a glimpse of the Source.

Do we lead?
Do we follow?

Yes/And…

I used to want
to change the world.

Now I seek
to know myself.

Today
I accept and embrace
this responsibility:

To listen compassionately,
to learn humbly,
and to love authentically.
