Walking By Faith

(Cindy Mercer Photography)

"Receptivity to what is given in the present: that is the proper posture for the creature. . . . This sort of trust involves a willingness to receive what is given (even if it was not originally desired) as well as a willingness to let it go again without grasping after repetition of the pleasure. Always, one must throw oneself into the wave."
