This week

Are we all in the same boat?


Maria’s Midweek Mindfulness 


Making sense of things


Pope Francis said that we are all on the same boat, all required  to row in the same direction and in need to comfort each other.  

Not so. We are all experiencing the same gale but we are in different boats weathering the winds differently.

Some are on open rafts destined to drown while others are in luxury seagoing vessels just knocked slightly off course.

Some are watching powerless to help, and others are jumping overboard to see if they can bring others to safety.

Some are being captained from a heartful place while others are suffering while leaders compete for authority.

Is this the way it is and has been for a very long time? Just now it is in even sharper focus because the sea is a lot rougher and we have less control.

My boat has been knocked off course and I’m waiting to see which way the wind blows and I notice I am a little less able to be of service to others right now.

How’s your boat doing?
