Grounding 2. A Poem.

Sometimes just following a voice is grounding.  A poem by Wendell Berry. Yet, ask yourself to stay present to the poem, allowing yourself to really hear it.

Let the poem fill your senses, listen with your senses. Listen in for as long as it goes.

A comment by “Ben” precedes his reproduction of the poem, stating: “This poem is one of my favourites. It really speaks to the universality of place and family in the lives of the human race. It also calls out the absurdity of hating another people for reasons that are not entirely clear to any of us.”

You might also want to peek into this video by Colman McCarthy on Peace. If you start at minute 18:15, you’ll hear a response to: “How does goodness happen?” … yet the whole thing is good.

I’ll do another sometime this week that calls on physical aspects of grounding or anchoring again.
