poetry | enough by david whyte


These few words are enough.
If not these words, this breath.
If not this breath, this sitting here.
This opening to life
we have refused
again and again
until now.
Until now.

Quote | Where we are

"God comes to us not where we should have been if we had made all the right choices in life; not where we could have been if we had taken every opportunity that God has offered us; not where we wish we were if we didn’t have to be in the place where we find ourselves; not where we think we arebecause our minds are out of sync with our hearts; not where other peoplethink we are or think we ought to be when they are attending to their own agendas. God meets us where we really are."

Quote | Embrace it all

"I now know myself to be a person of weakness and strength, liability and giftedness, darkness and light. I now know that to be whole means to reject none of it but to embrace all of it. Some may say that this embrace is narcissistic, an obsession with self at the expense of others, but that is not how I experience it. When I ignored my own truth on behalf of a distorted ego and ethic, I led a false life that caused others pain—for which I can only ask forgiveness. When I started attending to my own truth, more of that truth became available in my work and my relationships. I now know that anything one can do on behalf of true self is done ultimately in the service of others."

Quote | Ina Garten

Wonderful encouragement from Ina Garten (aka: The Barefoot Contessa) in this article by Forbes. 

“Do what you love. If it’s fun, you’ll be really good at it. And don’t worry so much.”

YES, I'll go ahead and do that Ina. Thank you!

Quote | Response to a Call

Contemplation is the response to a call: a call from [the one] who has no voice, and yet who speaks in everything that is, and who, most of all, speaks in the depths of our own being: for we ourselves are words of his…. Contemplation is this echo. It is a deep resonance in the inmost center of our spirit in which our very life loses its separate voice and re-sounds with the majesty and the mercy of the Hidden and Living One.
