talking to yourself…

i found something i love
in today’s entry in mark nepo’s
‘the book of awakening.’

i’m gonna type it here.
and you’ll think of people you love.
which is good…
but, then –
read it again.
and think about saying this to yourself.

‘The challenge, is to say to those we love,
“i am more than i have shown you and
more than you are willing to see.
let’s work our love and know each other more fully.”‘

isn’t that gorgeous?
and i love the idea of saying that and living that
with those we truly love.
yes. yes. yes. yes.

and then…i also love the idea of saying that and living that
with ourselves.
opening to honesty as much as we can with ourselves,
seeing what’s there – being WILLING to see –
knowing ourselves more fully.

yeah.
good stuff.
so much growth that we can open to…
