      This Is Golden Light Pouring & Pouring In With Incredible Insight.

      I Imagine this, Rather Approriately, as the final AOTD of the Year. Punctuates The Heart, Spirit, Soul and Faith of the Current Collective Pilgrimage.

      Highlight Passages:

      If you run enough with someone, you learn to hear them in a different way. You can conjure up their stride in your sleep. You can feel them without speaking. Their anxiety, their discomfort, their will, their struggle. It all arises without words, this love-language of footfall and breath. Run with someone long enough and the intimacy that builds will allow you to pull out of them the fine line of their suffering and carry them along with you the same way they carry you along with them.

      Beyond a 10! A must read for it’s poetic language, deep, unrelenting heart and powerful messages about growing up. Beautiful, tender insights. Absolutely loved this!

      I listened to this and thought of Michael as a model of what a man could be: embodying the road that slopes down toward the coast, gentle and unassuming, forever saying I will not be the cause of your suffering, and I will not be your savior; I will just be who I can be for you.

      The sooner we realize that crisis and suffering are part and parcel of living, the sooner compassion becomes a requirement for living as well.

      To suffer openly with another is also an act of kindness, and trust.
