Being Drawn

Two days in a row I re-blog a post quoting Rumi. He just finds a way into one’s heart with words and images of inspiration. Beauty is found in everyday events as we loosen the cobwebs from our eyes and realize that everything shows itself as a gift that we are drawn towards.

Candid Impressions

Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray.

 – Rumi

At my age, I must confess,  it comes down to about being drawn by beauty in all its forms.Therefore it has much to do with being drawn into deeper ways of seeing. I’ve discovered that nurturing the “being drawn to” in life has a profound sense of freedom about it. Exertion begins to fall away and is slowly replaced by a natural attraction and movement. To be able to live and move in this sphere of  “natural attraction” also has a wonderful peace about it.

About ivonprefontaine

I completed a PhD at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. Previously, I taught for 20 years and spent the last 14 years teaching in an incrediable hybrid school setting. My dissertation topic and research were how teachers experience becoming who teachers, as human subjects. For me, teaching is a calling and vocation that allows me to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what will call me. We have begun a small consulting and leadership firm called Rocky River Leadership & Consulting Ltd.
