“God is everywhere.“
I was reminded of this last week by Dina ElBadry, a Type Six presenter from Egypt, who told us that’s what the Sufi’s say. Though I was sitting still, the parts of me that had been restless suddenly revealed themselves, and I grew stiller. It was as if my soul got checked, and I actually felt the re-opening of my heart. I didn’t realize it had closed. We gave her a standing O.. I stood up not because her work was brilliant, which it was, but because I didn’t realize how much I needed that reminder.
Only three days before, in San Quentin Prison, a Type 7 who has “been down” 50 years, and studying the Enneagram for five of them, took his seat on a panel alongside eight other men in blue, and told us that he’s never been more full of hope. “My God.” We all remarked.
