In search of the unborn

Posted by Simon Parke, 24 May 2017, 8.16am

It’s day three of our Enneagram retreat.

And perhaps it’s a strange place to start but let there be something of the unborn in us today, for there in that fragility is our essence, eternal and undying.

Trapped momentarily in time, we can lose touch with our essence, our first self, and become children of multiplicity and distraction.

We obsess over scraps of knowledge and worship broken images of truth.

Unborn, we were not so distracted, but simple and without boundaries.

So today we take into our born lives something of the unborn.

To our multiplicity, we bring simplicity.

And to a world of competitive knowing, we bring a poverty of knowing.

The deep unknowing of the unborn.
