Vulnerability

flowers reaching out

“…many extraordinary edges that you can only actually crawl into on your hands and knees…that part of the experience of the final meeting would be missing if you did not actually follow the whole vulnerable contour of your own imperfect belonging into the fullness of the experience” David Whyte

In this case, David Whyte mentions there are two types of experiences that lead us to a spiritual deepening. In the first case, experience is derived from an authentic quest for truth, the chosen path of the spirit. In other moments, we stumble upon experience that we would not have chosen, pain, loss, leaving us…exposed…vulnerable…and while on our knees, the spirit blossoms.

“…muchas orillas extraordinarias en las que sólo puedes entrar gateando sobre tus manos y rodillas…que parte de la experiencia del encuentro final faltaría si no siguieras el contorno completo de vulnerabilidad de tu ser imperfecto adentrándose en la plenitud de la experiencia” David Whyte

En este caso, David Whyte menciona que hay dos tipos de experiencias que nos conducen a un ahondamiento espiritual. En el primer caso, la experiencia viene tras una búsqueda auténtica de la verdad, el camino que exige el espíritu. En otros momentos, tropezamos con la experiencia que no hubiésemos elegido, dolor, pérdida, que nos deja…expuestos…vulnerables…y mientras nos encontramos de rodillas, el espíritu florece.
