We are in very challenging times and life is inviting us to bring the best of who we are to each moment. It’s obvious how connected the whole world is – we are not alone or separate. Some of us are being asked  “to shelter in place” which is also an opportunity to go within… to rest in peace… and move forward from our strength, dignity, clarity, knowingness and truth.

This beautiful poem expresses so much possibility in these very challenging times.


What if you thought of it 
as the Jews consider the Sabbath—
the most sacred of times?  
Cease from travel. 
Cease from buying and selling. 
Give up, just for now, 
on trying to make the world 
different than it is. 
Sing. Pray. 
Touch only those 
to whom you commit your life.  
Center down.
And when your body has become still, 
reach out with your heart. 
Know that we are connected
in ways that are terrifying and beautiful.
(You could hardly deny it now.) 
Know that our lives 
are in one another’s hands. 
(Surely, that has come clear.) 
Do not reach out your hands. 
Reach out your heart. 
Reach out your words. 
Reach out all the tendrils 
of compassion that move, invisibly, 
where we cannot touch.
Promise this world your love-- 
for better or for worse, 
in sickness and in health, 
so long as we all shall live.
