May We Realize The Greatness of Our Sorrow

May we realize the greatness of our sorrow and not run from its touch or Its flame.
May clarity be our ally and wisdom our support.
May our wrath be cleansing, cutting through the confusion of denial and greed.
May we not be afraid to see or speak our truth.
May the bleakness of the wasteland be dispelled.
May the soul’s journey be revealed and the true hunger fed.
May we be forgiven for what we have forgotten and blessed with the remembrance of who we really are.

– from The Box, by the Terma Company, 1992

Help Yourself

A Difficult Knot

Releasing the separate one
is a difficult knot.
Finding yourself is something
only you can do.
Imagine yourself coming back
10 years from today
Through time, to help you
where you must be now.

— Jim Cohn

Reaching Hand

Just For Today?

How would it be
if just for today
we thought less about contests and rivalries,
profits and politics,
winners and sinners,
and more about
helping and giving,
mending and blending,
reaching out
and pitching in?

How would it be?

Do My Best

I Promise In Quiet Ways

I promise.
In quiet ways, most not seen.
To be myself,
to love enough,
to dream.
To give myself and you and me
a strong heart
a place to be.
To reach out
and color true,
to love a child
that’s me,
that’s you.

Dance When You’re Broken Open

Dance, when you’re broken open.
Dance, if you’ve torn the bandage off.
Dance in the middle of fighting.
Dance in your blood.
Dance, when you’re perfectly free.
Struck, the dancers hear the tambourine inside them,
as a wave turns the foam on its very top, begin.
Maybe you don’t hear that tambourine,
all the tree leaves clapping time.
Close the ears on your head that listen mostly to lies
and cynical jokes.
There are other things to hear and see:
dance, music and a brilliant city inside the soul.

— Rumi
