“Action is the abundance of the heart.” ~ Maurice Blondel

Our very existence is a testimony to transcendence.  We are becoming.  From our first moment of life to our last breath, we are becoming.  From our first skinned knee through health challenges of old age we are becoming.  From our first taste of chocolate to the savoring of fine wine, we are becoming.  We are finding our way home in all of our actions, all of our choices and all of our wanderings.

This life journey of becoming may seem to be filled with pitfalls and mistakes with only punctuations of brilliance and joy.  But in fact, it is a joyful and brilliant trip with some times of pain and difficulty.

The challenge of understanding this truth is offered up so that we might find the infinite in every moment.  Then we will not only endure and survive but will be enabled to rise above. This transcendence will remind us that what we do matters.

Our actions will come from an abundance of the heart. They will become more deliberate and considered while knee-jerk reactions fade away.  They will be directed by a power higher than ourselves.
