The Journey is the Destination

Friday, 19 April 2013



Tell me a story of who you are,
and see who I am in the stories I am living.
And together we will remember that each of us always has a choice.

Don't tell me how wonderful things will be... some day.
Show me you can risk being completely at peace,
truly okay with the way things are right now in this moment,
and again in the next and the next and the next...

Show me how you take care of business
without letting business determine who you are.

When the children are fed but still the voices within and around us -
shout that soul's desires have too high a price,
let us remind each other that it is never about the money.

Dance with me in the silence and in the sound of small daily words,
holding neither against me at the end of the day.

I have sent you my invitation,
the note inscribed on the palm of my hand by the fire of living.
Don’t jump up and shout, “Yes, this is what I want! Let’s do it!”
Just stand up quietly and dance with me.
