Swimming with the little fish

15-mullet-migrationGood Evening, God!

This morning  I swam in the midst of a school of little fish and it was magical.  Hundreds and hundreds of fish in one school that wheeled and turned as one.  I turned with them. How could I not?  Their “oneness” was enchanting!

How I wished I had an underwater camera with me!  But it really needed a video to capture their joyful dance.  Even that wouldn’t capture what it was like being in the midst of them. . . fish on all sides of me.  Well, not above me, that’s true.  But swimming in their midst I could feel myself becoming one with them.

Being with.  For some time now I have been aware that when I am with a person there is a “Being With-ness” that goes far beyond words.  Something “MORE” is going on.  I cannot put it into words because it is beyond words.  And I can’t even say if it is more basic than words or if it is “above” words.

But, this morning as I sat chatting with my spiritual director she talked about how — in Centering — there is a time when we release words and even thoughts and enter into Your Presence.  And I thought about that as I was turning joyfully with the school of little fish.

That sense of “being with” the fish . . . of becoming more . . . made me hold on to that as a close analogy to what she meant about being with You.  For me, it is a visual image of spiritual reality.  And I hold it dear.  Thank You.
