Residue of Rising
Recognizing the Residue of Rising, what's that? Well I don't have an answer! I have a story, an experience to which you may relate . There a few times in my life where I was hit by a bolt of lightning (not literally) of "knowing". When I heard William Bennett play Bach in 1990, Lorna playing in a Masterclass in Calgary, Heather's CPO Pilates classes, when I first met Wayne on Pender and we started in immediately with the commonality between flute and Martial Arts! Performing Bruckner 4 with Yannick Seguin conducting.
It was a recognition, not only of another kindred spirit, but also of a direction - follow that - that's it! Pender Island Flute Retreat, MWL, Flow research, wild women circles, spiritual practices, and radical acceptance came from that warm lightning. Hot lightning? that came too, as there isn't rising unless there is a fall, and boy have I had a few !
It is also a recognition that there has been the necessary suffering and rising in the other as well. There is a known and unknowable residue in that rising. A resonance to their presence.
