How will you ever find peace
unless you yield to love?
If you put down what you carry
in case of emergency, you will make
space for what can really help. For
clutching onto failure or success
will only make you sink.
And feeding your fear will only
turn it into a dark house
that no one can leave.
So unlatch the cage you have
double-locked and watch the
dark things fly.
There is a nameless drop of
honey inside every dream and
scheme. Finding it is not a reward
and missing it is not a punishment.
Its quiet appearance is, at last, a small
harmonic opening in response
to presence or light.
A Question to Walk With: Describe your most enduring experience of presence or light and how it affected you.
This excerpt is from my book, Finding Inner Courage (Red Wheel Press).
