how to understand the call

It is a serious thing

Just to be alive

On this fresh morning

In this broken world.

~Mary Oliver

when I can’t settle down, I settle in…..

inquiry for today~ there’s nothing left when your practice of the day feels just right….

that vulnerable moment

A seeming stillness-

This is how you were when you first came into the world,

this is how you were when you took your first breath

in this world, this is how you are now, in your new body and your new life,

this is the raw vulnerability of your everyday,

and this is how you will want to be,

and be remembered,

when you leave the world.

~David Whyte
