poetry, quotes & thoughts about life

so inviting

  
AWAKEN TO THE INVITATION

As the density of night gives way to the bright song of the dawn, so your soul continually coaxes you to give way to the light and awaken. Longing is the voice of your soul, it constantly calls you to be fully present in your life: to live to the full the one life given to you. Rilke said to the young poet, “Live everything.” You are here on earth now, yet you forget so easily. You traveled a great distance to get here. The dream of your life has been dreamed from eternity. You belong within a great embrace that urges you to have the courage to honor the immensity that sleeps in your heart. When you learn to listen to and trust the wisdom of your soul’s longing, you will awaken to the invitation of graced belonging that inhabits the generous depths of your destiny. You will become aware of the miracle of presence within and around you.

 Like this ocean 
Needs the moon 

Like my coffee 

Needs the cream 

Like my music 

Bleeds dark blue 

So do I need you 
Like the body 

Water craves 

Like the frugal 

Money save 

Like the artist 

Must create 

So do I need you 
I need you 

like breathe 

Like food 

Like rain 

I need you 

Right now 

And every day 

Like the waves 

Must kiss the shore 

So do I need you 

Always 

So do I need you
