May this be a morning of innocent beginning,
When the gift within you slips clear
Of the sticky web of the personal
With its hurt and hauntings,
And fixed fortress corners,
A morning when you become a pure vessel
For what wants to ascend from silence,
May your imagination know
The grace of perfect danger,
To reach beyond imitation,
And the wheel of repetition,
Deep into the call of all
The unfinished and unsolved
Until the veil of the unknown yields
And something original begins
To stir toward your senses
And grow stronger in your heart…
Excerpt from, ‘For the Artist at the Start of Day’
BENEDICTUS (Europe) / TO BLESS THE SPACE BETWEEN US (US)
…quietly just now, just one word:
Believe the best.
Believe the hard is being worked out for good.
Believe the best is still to come.
Believe in the One who is Best.
