To have the courage when you don’t have all the answers to the questions.

To love when you don’t know how it’s going to end.

To be in the quiet space of knowing and not knowing.

To float sublimely in the simplicity of your being.

To know the freedom of so much tenderness.

The strength and vulnerability of letting go.

To know the quiet longing of an earnest heart.

To rise above when all else pulls you down.

To listen when other voices clamour for attention

To silence the heart when its beats drown out the sound of your own tears.

I rest in the peace that comes when love has gained the victory.
