Savoring the Unfolding Day
“To make friends with the hours is to come to know all the hidden correspondences inside our own bodies that match the richness and movement of life we see around us.” —David Whyte
Eremos has been exploring the theme of 2021: Unfolding: Being Present to Life, in a myriad of ways throughout this trying year.
What could be a better model of unfolding for us than the way the day and night present themselves?
It may well be one of the most ancient practices of humankind: acknowledging and responding to the daily rotation of our planet and the Hours that ensue. The rise and fall of the day is something given to us even in the most disruptive of times.
Spend this day in a poetic retreat savoring each Hour and the way it displays itself in your personal environment. Learn from both perennial and personal wisdom the gifts, challenges, and creative responses each Hour offers. Let this guide you to a more harmonious alignment with Time and transform your daily routine into a more nurturing, appreciative, and invigorating passage. Remember how to participate in the sacred unfolding.
