this widening awareness

Give yourself time to make a prayer that will become the prayer of your soul.

Listen to the voices of longing in your soul. Listen to your hungers.

Give attention to the unexpected that lives around the rim of your life.

Listen to your memory and to the inrush of your future, to the voices of those near you and those you have lost.

Out of all of that attention to your soul, make a prayer that is big enough for your wild soul,

yet tender enough for your shy and awkward vulnerability;

that has enough healing to gain the ointment of divine forgiveness for your wounds;

enough truth and vigour to challenge your blindness and complacency;

enough graciousness and vision to mirror your immortal beauty.

Write a prayer that is worthy of the destiny to which you have been called.

~John O’Donohue

I remember how to celebrate tiny remembrances….

inquiry for today~ there is nothing particularly lost in between memories…..

from the inside of weariness

We are born in this corridor of aliveness between the song of life and the pain of life,

and it’s up to us what music will we sing.

~Mark Nepo
