let the day be raw

Life cannot be handled.

The secret is simply to show up.

It’s about witnessing it all, even the pain,

and letting it touch you and make you not harder,

but more tender. Showing up, feeling it all—

this is my new kind of prayer.

I call it praying attention,

and it’s how, for me,

everything turns holy.

~Glennon Doyle

whispering those sweet nothings to this amazing life…

inquiry for today~ suffering and all- it’s still amazing….

how I found you

There is a quiet light that shines in every heart. It draws no attention to itself though it is always secretly there. It is what illuminates our minds to see beauty, our desire to seek possibility and our hearts to love life. Without this subtle quickening our days would be empty and wearisome, and no horizon would ever awaken our longing.

Our passion for life is quietly sustained from somewhere in us that is wedded to the energy and excitement of life. This shy inner light is what enables us to recognize and receive our very presence here as blessing. We enter the world as strangers who all at once become heirs to a harvest of memory, spirit, and dream that has long preceded us and will now enfold, nourish, and sustain us.

~John O’Donohue
