This day…

May you embrace this day,
not just as any old day,
but as this day.
Your day.
Held in trust by you, in a singular place,
called now.

Spring Is Coming…

A Speed of Soul Thought

Yes, Spring is coming.
But before the buds,
Before the blooms,
In the clean, clear grey light,
The world vibrates
With muddy possibility.
May I be content to be now
To drink in the almost and soon
Here in the beautiful not yet.

Diving deeper

“Perhaps the goal
Is not to spend this day
Power skiing atop an ocean of multitasking.
Maybe the idea is to swim slower
Surer
Dive deeper
And really look around.
There is a difference between
A life of width
And a life of depth.”

Excerpt From: Because There Is Not Enough Time, “A Permeable Life: Poems and Essays” – Carrie Newcomer

 

Everything Matters

“Almost everything that matters is difficult, and everything matters”-Rilke

The things we love the most will eventually take us to the crossroads and ask us to be true. I don’t mean that the good things of our life are a chore or burden. But rather, what we most love inspires and encourages us to show up as our whole self, are best self and our truest self.

Oh beloved, this is a gift, to have something in our lives, something so beautiful, something we love so much that we will keep trying, even when it gets hard. (Carrie Newcomer)
