the contemplative heart

May I live this day

Compassionate of heart,

Clear in word,

Gracious in awareness,

Courageous in thought,

Generous in love.

~John O’Donohue

the simple ways of living…..

inquiry for today~ may you sink your bones deep into the earth….

as we fall down

It is part of the mystery of life on earth that the human soul can awaken, grow greater,

and reveal inner gifts when everything turns dark and seems about to fall apart.

Soul does not fear a downturn or seek to avoid a period of darkness.

Soul carries a deeper wisdom and darker knowledge born of descent and loss and renewal.

Soul would have us go where we fear to go in order to learn who we are intended to be.

~Michael Meade
