InnerNet Weekly: Inspirations from
We Are Weavers
by Jon Madian

[Listen to Audio!]

2480.jpgwe are weavers
woven into and from
an ancient ever renewing fabric
on an invisible loom
more subtle than breath

at one turn
we pull
to add to our own design
to sing each life’s most important song
i am, i belong

in another turn
we push
to etch the themes
built into pyramid, cathedral
and telescope, all designed to search
the mystery of hope & will

each of us, if our life is blessed,
leaves sufficient yarn
for the next generation
to pick up the many living threads
whose origins are beyond
the pure geometry of stars
and with bone and marrow shuttle
we leave the foundation
for those who will weave the fabric of tomorrow

Global call with Ryland Engelhart!

Back in 1997, one person started sending this simple “meditation reminder” to a few friends. Soon after, “Wednesdays” started, ServiceSpace blossomed, and the humble experiments of service took a life of its own. If you’d like to start an Awakin gathering in your area, we’d be happy to help you get started.
