Sunday Morning

Enough. 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.

~David Whyte, “Enough” Where Many Rivers Meet

  2. Yes. When we learn to accept enough, we can actually enjoy whatever it is…

    • Yes. If only.

      Everyone wants you to be Atlas,
      to shoulder it all. Even the voice in your
      head insists you are behind. But I’ve seen
      the light in you, the one the gods finger
      while we sleep. I’ve seen the blossom open
      in your heart, no matter what remains to
      be done. There are never enough hours
      to satisfy the minions of want. So close
      your eyes and lean into the Oneness that
      asks nothing of you…. You have never been more
      complete than in this incomplete moment.

  4. Beautiful, pal, and I think I love the Nepo even more. Sometimes so hard to give oneself a break, particularly at this time of year. Sending peaceful thoughts your way….
