Here is your weekly dose of Friday Focus, a smattering of what I’m reading, listening to, learning, watching or pondering.
What I’m reading – Love and Awakening: Discovering the Sacred Path of Intimate Relationship by John Welwood. Combining Eastern and Western philosophy and teaching, this book is a wonderful reflection on long term intimacy as the most spiritual teacher in life – discovering our innermost nature as reflected in the gaze and soul of the beloved. I am only half way through this, but will most likely be finished by the time you receive this email.
What I’m watching – I found this gem on Amazon Video and because it is so rich and poignant, I’ve watched it three times already. Thomas Keating: A Rising Tide of Silence. This is a delightful introduction to Thomas Keating, his life and movement towards contemplation and centering prayer.
Quote I’m pondering – “God will bring people and events into our lives, and whatever we may think about them, they are designed for the evolution of His life in us.” ~ Thomas Keating
