points of light

In the sabbath spirit, this is a beautiful excerpt from Simple Ways Toward the Sacred by Gunilla Norris, and a book review here:

"What if we set out every morning with curiosity, 
with the intention to notice
as many opportunities as possible?
Would it not be like reading the world
as a holy book — a Lectio Divina of sorts,
that ancient practice of spiritual reading?
Every day we could be pouring over
the unfolding of new and possible worlds.

"There are innumerable, small opportunities
to be helpful, attentive, or kind.
Taking up these opportunities,
would we not come to know that we are
a living part of the infinite story?"
