“Take off your shoes, for the place where you are standing is holy ground.” Acts 7:33
I love this quote. It seems to capture the essence of what Spiritual Direction is all about. Spiritual Direction helps you to look attentively at “the place where you are standing” and to uncover in that place the potential for growth, healing, development and ultimately freedom. The place where this will happen is not some unreachable place but the here and now of today’s life, whatever the current experience of life may be. It is the here and now that is “holy ground” and if you “take off your shoes” and stand still in silence and respect that “holy ground” may begin to reveal more and more.
