So the religious quest is a search for wholeness, for the manifestation of one's true self, and at the same time, for a rootedness in that which transcends the personal self.

Transcendence and Rootedness
Journeys into Emptiness - Dogen, Merton, Jung and the Quest for Transformation.
This evokes for me a vertical image, stretching infinitely up but finitely down. I think that makes sense. It speaks to me about making the connection. You know that feeling when putting a puzzle together and the piece slips into the space just perfectly. It's a settling feeling.
As I think about this season, It's incarnated for me in having the kids and grandchildren home for Christmas.
That's a connection!
How does this speak to an experience of "emptiness"? Don't have a clue!
How does relate to the cello?
I don't know, just love that picture!
Welcome home Kids!
