The Practice of Devotion


“Devotion is commitment gone mad. It is mad in the sense that you have to leave the order of your mind to enter into the wildness of your heart. Devoted people are literally seized by love. To live devoted means to lie in the lap of the Divine.” ~ Richard Rudd

What are you devoted to? Who are you devoted to? How does your devotion help you to navigate your path in this crazy world? These are questions I ask myself and my community on a regular basis. My answer has always been the same for as far back as I can remember. I believe the 9 year old Terilyn, navigating her first year as an outcast at a new school would answer the same as the 42 year old Terilyn going through the hardest year of her life with divorce and family tragedy: Love.
