look deep

Einstein had a wonderful way with words mixing spiritual and intellectual. When we look deeply into nature, we see ourselves embedded in nature and begin to sense more deeply what it means to live.

About ivonprefontaine

I completed a PhD at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. Previously, I taught for 20 years and taught for 15 years in a wonderful hybrid school. My dissertation topic and research were how certain teachers experience becoming who teachers. In teaching and leanring, I am a boundary-crosser who understands moving ahead is a leap of faith. Teaching is a calling and vocation to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what calls me next. I am an educator, phenomenologist, scholar, boundary-crosser, published poet, author, parent, grandparent, and spouse.

  1. Combine the wisdom of nature and peer inward to discover the whole universe, me and you.

    Nature helps us understand us, our relationship with the world.

  2. This certainly coincides with my current activity. I recently wrote a piece on the lowly caterpillar and his journey of metamorphosis to the form of a beautiful butterfly comparing its change of form to that of the Christian who also begins life in the same form as the caterpillar as an egg. The caterpillar’s path of transformation conforms to the criteria placed within it by his creator (is this also called DNA?) which is controlled automatically by his genetics whereas with man, God prefers that the transformation be by choice. I refer, of course, to the spiritual change. There are differences, mainly the mind and ability to reason for man, which could be at least part of the reason he has to choose. My new book is titled From Faith to Faith which pinpoints the necessity of spiritual growth in life that is pleasing to the Father. Thanks for the quote. I had never come across it.
