We live in two seemingly incompatible worlds - rational and spiritual. How can we keep our balance?
Like the dolphin who exists in both water and air, so must we learn to live and thrive in two conflicting worlds - the rational, material, everyday craziness of life versus the still, spiritual soulfulness of our deepest selves. Balancing the two - difficult as it often can be - is the key to our spiritual survival.
Through poignant stories, spiritual teaching and insights, Karyn Kedar shares with us the ways we can integrate the everyday - family, work, personal challenges - with our quest for deeper spiritual understanding. She helps us to decode the three 'languages' we must learn to weave the seemingly ordinary and extraordinary together:
Prayer - The path through which our souls connect with the Divine
Perspective - How we define life's twists and turns, and how our words and actions define the quality of our lives
Meaning - The quest to understand and make sense of all that seems incompatible
In graceful ways, Kedar shows us that by realizing the connection between the ordinary and the awe-inspiring, we can synchronize our hearts with the ways of the world and live with joy, a sense of calm and greater purpose.
'The dance of the dolphin, as it gracefully navigates water and air, tells me to find a balance because life is a mystery of contradictions, worlds I know and those I don't, realities I can see and those I can only sense. We live with paradox and ambiguity. We live in our minds and in our souls. We live in our own world and in the world of all. And all the while we dance, sometimes with grace, and sometimes not.' - from Part Three
