so small I am

The ache for Home lives in all of us,

the safe place where we can go as we are,

and not be questioned.

~Maya Angelou

I feel more grounded and whole when I know we are held and supported together….

inquiry for today~   your vulnerability is how you know you are you…..

from the delicate places

When we feel held by a caring presence, by something larger than our small frightened self, we begin to find room in our own heart for the fragments of our life, and for the lives of others. The suffering that might have seemed “too much” can awaken us to the sweetness of compassion.

As Rilke puts it-

I yearn to be held

In the great hands of your heart.

Oh, let them take me now.

Into them I place these fragments, my life-

~Tara Brach
