Life’s work

We need more brave souls,

who are willing to undertake the perilous journey

from the safety of their heads

into the wilderness of their hearts.

Don’t worry,

I’m not advocating for losing your mind…

I just want you to know thinking only gets us so far.

There’s an ethereal world out there that we can’t plan for.

Right around the corner,

there are infinite landscapes …

gorgeous pathways of the soul leading to ever more.

You can’t even fathom the beauty until you step out the door,

and I want you to experience every drop of it.

I want you to bask in every ray of perfect love…

joy, connection, the Divine,

pristine sunshine-

and brokenness is part of the deal.

Storms come,

and the fullness of life will break your heart.

There’s only one way for your spirit to soar –

you have to be willing to go there.

The journey starts with a prayer and a yes.

Once you have the courage to step into the mystery,

grace will carry you through it all.

The riches of prayerful silence

If you could begin to fathom the wealth of graces

waiting for you under the surface of life,

you wouldn’t hesitate to dive right into the crystal clear pool of silence.

You would swim boldly,

deep into the beauty of hope.

Even though you’re terrified,

while the frosty water bites your skin

and you imagine creatures hungrily swimming up

to devour your last resolve …

If you had even an inkling of the gemstone treasure waiting to nourish your soul in the quiet depths of contemplation,

you would never quit.

You would surrender even your breath to dive ever deeper,

until you lose yourself completely

in the sacred mystery of His love for you.

I’m telling you the good news beause someone once told me,

and I had the grace to believe.

I dove into faith and lost everything,

even my own life

before I discovered the miracle of infinite riches He’d created me for.

Now I’m alive in truth, bejeweled in dignity.

I finally realize my worth as the daughter of a King, and

I want the same for you.

The question is:

Do you have the courage to your heart wide enough

to receive these graces?

Will you take the plunge?
