i also wanted to say thank you to all of you who held my last post with utmost tenderness. i received so many letters of kindness – thank you. i was a little bit afraid to publish that post, but i’ve learned that doing the things i’m most afraid of offer so much expansion to my spirit and connection with others. and the leaps heal, they always, always do.
she also sent over this poem by jennifer wellwood, and i had to share it. it’s perfect in every way.
Willing to experience aloneness,
I discover connection everywhere;
Turning to face my fear,
I meet the warrior who lives within;
Opening to my loss,
I gain the embrace of the universe;
Surrendering into emptiness,
I find fullness without end.
Each condition I flee from pursues me,
Each condition I welcome transforms me
And becomes itself transformed
Into its radiant jewel-like essence.
I bow to the one who has made it so,
Who has crafted this Master Game.
To play it is purest delight;
To honor its form–true devotion.
sending gratitude out over the internet wires today,
