Sunday Quote: Walk with reverence, don’t rush through life

sunday-q

When we walk on the earth with reverence,

beauty will decide to trust us

The rushed heart and arrogant mind

lack the gentleness and patience to enter that embrace,

John O’Donohue, Beauty: The Invisible embrace

See your own strength

Oh soul, you worry too much.

You have seen your own strength. You have seen your own beauty. You have seen your golden wings.
Of anything less, why do you worry?

You are in truth the soul, of the soul, of the soul.

This is the first, the wildest, and the wisest thing I know:

that the soul exists and is built entirely out of attentiveness.

Mary Oliver, Primroses

I thrive on long walks where I find myself slowing down to the rhythm of my own possibilities. That is my speed. There I find my breathing. I used to live in Thailand where the word for breathing, hai jai, is translated as ‘give your heart.’ This used to remind me that to breathe, and to simply be aware of that breath, is to give to your heart.
