A Deep dream

File:Pinus cembra shoot.jpg

I’ve spent many years learning
how to fix life, only to discover
at the end of the day
that life is not broken

There is a hidden seed of greater wholeness
in everyone and everything.
We serve life best
when we water it
and befriend it.
When we listen before we act.

In befriending life,
we do not make things happen
according to our own design.
We uncover something that is already happening
in us and around us and
create conditions that enable it.

Everything is moving toward its place of wholeness
always struggling against the odds.

Everything has a deep dream of itself and its fulfillment.

One thought on “A Deep dream

  1. Thank you giving voice to my experience. There’s so much that’s right with the world, even though sometimes I can’t quite see that rightness.
    I haven’t quite figured out how to make a seed grow into a flower. I guess it knows what to do.
