For a New Beginning~
by John O’Donohue
“In 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.
For a long time, it has watched you desire, feeling the emptiness growing inside you
Noticing how you willed yourself on, still unable to leave what you had outgrown.
It watched you play with the seduction of safety, and the grey promises that sameness whispered.
Wondered, would you always live like this.
Then the delight, when your courage kindled.
And out you stepped onto new ground.
Your eyes young again with energy and dream, a path of plentitude opening before you.
Though your destination is not yet clear, you can trust the promise of this opening.
Unfurl yourself in to the Grace of Beginning
That is at one with your Life’s desires.
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.”
