Jason lives in Tacoma....he's another acquired savant.
I LOVE that he sees FRACTALS. I also see fractals and tie it to color/theology where he ties it to math.
I look back at where I was a year ago....two years ago....three years ago.....It's been a long trip down the rabbit hole. Thankfully I didn't know what was coming. But I'm sitting here grateful. I've been carved out in ways that I never could've imagined. Brought to my knees so many times that it's now my default posture. And my roots run so much deeper....so much so that I feel almost silly for the things I was caught up in just a few short years ago. I've discovered that as I grow and learn, I become more humble...I'm less concerned with image and more concerned with substance...I cultivate my awareness of the LOVE that is everywhere...and i empty myself...Entering into POVERTY so that it's GOD that fills me up.
It took losing my health to gain this understanding. It's up to God if I get my physical health back.
But I choose to think of myself as healthy at this moment. Although I'd like to be restored to physical wellness, I feel such deep gratitude for the lessons that I've learned.
I'm a Secular Franciscan. I'm a minister. I bravely say YES to God, on my knees, and then I wait.
This is the prayer that started it all for me after the TBI....
"Speak GOD, Thy humble servant is listening."
One by one we are discovering my diagnoses. What have I learned on this journey? RARE ISN'T RARE.
"Rare disease impacts more people than cancer and AIDS combined."
"There are more than 350 million people who have 7,000 identified rare diseases worldwide. In United States alone, one out of 10 people have a rare disease."
