The joy of finding a mind extremely sympathetic to my own
The spiritual excitement of making contact with a soul
full of enthusiasm for the world
The satisfaction of realizing that the questions I’m concerned with
are indeed those that have animated the deep-rooted life of humanity
Teilhard de Chardin
So I search for a life companion, and for friends who are moved to their core by the majesty of living. I search for people who are willing to open their heart as we talk. I search for men and women who feel poised on the edge of the future, wondering with all their wonder about what human beings can become.
I know some folks like this, but for one reason or another they are not deeply present in my life. The ones whom I see week in and week out no doubt have the stirrings of possibility inside them, but they don’t often speak it. Or maybe they never speak it. And that’s fine. I’ll take any conversation and usually bring forth a silent blessing for both of us. Still, I yearn for the dialogue.
Someday, within my red and yellow condo walls, a fellow imbiber of the spirit will sit with me in meditation and communion and emergence. Friends of the journey will gather for food and drink and sacred dialogue. Just not yet.
What astonishments can we create together?
This to be determined in the fullness of time
