It is a hard thing for me to learn patience because I am afraid, afraid that I will not accomplish all I wish to see done in my lifetime, afraid I will squander the one precious chance to live well. It is my heart's deep desire to live well, fully, deeply, expansively, wholly, abundantly.
Your poems call me back from fear. Your Scriptures gently remind me that you are life, the fullness of all my heart seeks, the depth of unexplored wonders, the expansiveness of all the stars, the wholeness of true oneness, the abundance of all that is and was and ever will be.
Teach me to live in the patient surrender of long knowing. Teach me to be eternal.
