Thank YOU, God, for yesterday! A day of lows — of being real — that led me to a higher level of understanding of my oldest daughter.
And, what could better express that than being at the Getty Center — build high on a hill overlooking L.A.
And, even getting up the hill was symbolic. We parked lower down — stood in line for the tram — and were carried up the hill on this AIR powered tram. For me, this captures how it is that greater understanding seems clearly to involve BEING CARRIED UP TO IT. Carried by Others — Carried by You — Carried beyond that which we can achieve by ourself.
My daughter helped me to enter into the Cosmos of the Introvert. The closes I can come to describing it — was that it was like putting on InfraRed Goggles and seeing what had been invisible to me. And, YES, God, I know that putting on these Goggles was a special gift to us both.
In spite of my “Moth and Bat” type stories illustrating how UNAWARE we all are of MAJOR DIFFERENCES between people — I remained totally unaware of there even being Another Cosmos — the Cosmos of the Introvert. Or maybe it was like suddenly seeing that Dark Matter that scientists have only postulated must exist?
Now, God, I AM THANKFUL. I don’t want to waste too much energy being appalled or sad or mortified that I didn’t understand EARLIER! I do hear You saying that the Secondary Gift is That it is HUMBLING! Yeah, it is humbling. And THANK YOU FOR THAT, TOO!
