How could one be convinced
to decide upon what one wants
and then commit with all one’s might
to bringing that thing into reality when
open to the day and deciding nothing
life delivers the most unexpected pleasures?
I have come to see
that my ideas about life and the way I would like it
are quite puny indeed in comparison
to the majestic ideas of the universe.
At times, I throw my hands up in despair
sure that God has gotten off track and taken a left to hell
instead of a right to heaven.
But I am humbled again and again
on my knees and begging forgiveness
seeing that these detours through hell
were exactly what was needed
in order to crack me open to the light.
for there is nothing
that is not your path.
Love and courage,
