I recently learned the term thirsty to describe someone being pushy, annoyingly eager — especially a person who will not take “no” when he’s trying to sell you something or when she’s trying to win you over to an idea.
It’s got me thinking about how sometimes our enthusiasm, passion, drive, and even need can light up a space and fill it with energy, inspiring ourselves and others to greatness. But at other times, this thirst can suck the juice right out of everything and everyone around us. What’s the difference?
We’re all thirsty. Our hearts all long for a deeper and deeper drink of Life. But we can feel perpetually parched if we try to quench our thirst with anything less than the Love of the Infinite.
I can’t wait to see you at Albuquerque Center for Spiritual Living (abqcsl.org) for our weekly service of song and celebration this Saturday at 6:00, with the splendiferous Patty Stephens & Sid Fendley. Join us at 5:30 for wine & cheer. XO, Rev. Drew
