For Ash Wednesday, For Awaiting Souls

A Tree Waiting For SpringIn the out of the way places of the heart,

Where your thoughts never think to wander,

this beginning has been quietly forming,

Waiting until you were ready to emerge.

Though your destination is not yet clear

You can trust the promise of this opening;

Unfurl yourself into the grace of beginning

That is at one with your life’s desire.

Awaken your spirit to adventure;

Hold nothing back, learn to find ease in risk;

Soon you will be home in a new rhythm,

For your soul senses the world that awaits you.

From John O’Donohue’s  To Bless the Space Between Us: A Book of Blessings
