(This simple epiphany came to me initially when Nashville flooded in 2010. It comes to mind during times of flooding such as happened in Nepal last year and has occurred along the Eastern Coast recently especially in towns like Lumberton, NC and in the country of Haiti.)
At lunch, I glimpsed news coverage titled "Flood Emergency Update." The word 'Emergency' caught my eye because I immediately saw tucked within another word - "emerge." Then I heard myself saying, "Emerge N C" followed by "Emerge and see."
I love words. They are simple yet powerful keys available for us to see the possibilities in times like these.
Imagine what is being held in this crisis if we can hold and use this as an opportunity to Emerge, to come out, to bring forth new ways of being, living and relating to one another and to Mother Earth.
Every emergency offers an opportunity for us to emerge and see the patterns, people and things that really matter.
Emerge and See with Me !
