Life is graceful

We believe that life is and all of its parts are divine. That means that life is graceful; it is bestowed freely with effortless beauty and divine love. But it takes a certain ferocity to live in that awareness—not a ferocity that is savage and violent, but a ferocity that demands a resolute intensity. It requires a fierce grace to live in the light. To remain balanced and in principle when faced with the apparent inadequacies of life’s experience is to live in grace. When we remember that we are not a polarized side of the experience but instead all of it, the wholeness manifests. And in that wholeness, grace exists.
