“What You Seek is Seeking You” – Rumi

Without even knowing it existed, this is one of my favourite quotes! Many years ago during a course I was taking, we were going through a guided mediation with the instructions to look for a door.
In the darkness of my mind I was desperately seeking this door (I didn’t want to be the only one in the class who couldn’t find it!) and I got this absolute sense that while I was seeking the door, the door was also seeking me.
I can’t tell you the feeling of absolute comfort and trust that washed over me when I recognized the truth of that knowing. I even created a visual reminder of a door (out of paper) where I wrote almost these exact words.
“Remember…that as you seek the door, the door is seeking you.”
“Get a backbone!” is a phrase I have been told before. How exactly do you “get” a backbone when technically you are born with one? Well…
It’s been an exciting past year, and there is much to share. As I’ve been thinking of writing a blog post for a while now, something was stopping me. I hesitated. Why? So I decided to play a game.
I am quite excited to share with you what this “playing with sparks” is all about (even more excited to see for myself as I play it into life!) but I wanted to pause…
My passion is to create innovative and engaging ways to open up our thinking and talking about what matters to us - in our life and our death.
