taking today to be quiet
and just get grounded.
and no one speaks to my heart
and helps me find my ground
like mark nepo does.
this is a little bit from his book,
‘seven thousand ways to listen’ –
wanted to share….
“In my pain, I looked at my fellow patients surviving under their
invisible weights and at the soft and chiseled nurses tied to
removing those weights. In my pain, I realized that, indeed,
everyone is right – and everyone is hoping that the turned-over
card that God is holding on their behalf is an ace. But when
we are opened by suffering, a mix of humility and desperation
makes whatever card we hold glow so brightly that the faces of
Kings and Queens become our faces – and miraculously every face
holds everything. And whether we live or die, it becomes blessedly
clear that every one of us is a gift and every card an ace.’
i can’t read that without crying.
