Can you trust your vulnerability?
Can you ‘hold the space’ for bringing heaven here to earth?
Are you willing to be truly seen?
I like it when a new word crosses my path, even if it’s not a word found in the dictionary. A word gifted from someone with their own definition which I am not completely sure of their meaning. So I made up my own.
‘Respontaniety’. I suppose you could hyphenate it.. re-spontaniety. I think it loses the feel I have for it’s definition with a hyphen. Re-spontaniety… seem more like it means to redo a spontaneous moment. Like how do you do that? Would it be spontaneous again? mmmm That ain’t right…
‘respontaniety’ means for me: 1: to respond suddenly, 2: to be spontaneous in ones response to a given moment, question, feeling, sensation. 3: to respond suddenly when one decides to get around to it.
I fear #3 is the definition reflected by the wordsmith of this word. The other two work much better for me as I muse around in the pool of possibilities. As I muse and wonder about this word Respontaniety and consider it’s source.
If any of you have a definition, I’d love to hear it. It’s a worthy word and I’m going to use it.

Questions that lead to answers
that lead to questions
that lead to knowing
that lead to understanding
that lead to deepening knowledge
that lead to more questions
that let us find our likeness and
differences in what we gather to our
wisdom about our experiences,
our clever goings
our slow to share
our quick to give
Rest…. comfort in what is gathered
let it simmer. let it tickle
let it resist, let it ponder
let it provoke, let it have wonder
let it know care-fullness
let it wait…
let the inquiry not be a burden
it is the foreplay of desire’s
want to share the heart
to be seen… to be heard
to be heard .. to be seen
It is in the giving of answers
that allows response to find
to experience another
to explore possibilities
to reject, to unfold,
To find each other.
