Wander Within

IMG_9828 (1).jpg

Live in the Soul’s soft longing,
where all things beautiful and true
(especially the ugly and the false)
wait to be transformed.

Move towards what is beautiful to you —
a smile, a flower, a favorite corner
where you can see the river.
Move into what moves you and
uncover the mysteries of your life.

From these journeys come the treasures
of the Soul, a direct response to
the world and its sorrow, emerging
from within to become medicine —
first for you, and then for all of us.

Wander within, slow down and find
the pace of deep knowing.
Just when it seems terrible, fraught,
and impossible, that’s when to keep going,
that’s when to push against the walls,
come into the light, be born into
the dance of your life.
