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

I Am A Million Broken Pieces Creating A Whole


This image is of a Hindu goddess named Akhilandeshvari, whose name translates to “she who is never not broken.”
Without even knowing much about her mythology, I realized recently I have been living and telling the story of Akhilandeshvari for many years. You see, She represents the parts of ourselves that are not keeping it all together, the parts that are ripped open by loss and grief leaving us utterly transformed by the brilliance and resilience of our own light. She is also riding on the back of a crocodile which suggests courage to conquer all fears. Her image really resonates with me for what I see is that Her cracks reveal the magnificence of Her light. I truly believe that it is when we plunge (or are plunged) into our woundedness, our brokenness, we open to grace and in these moments we are cradled in the arms of God.

I’d truly arrived, my soul had caught up with my body and I found myself steeped in the practice of morning meditation.
