When your eyes are tired
the world is tired also.
When your vision has gone
no part of the world can find you.
Time to go into the dark
where the night has eyes
to recognize it own.
There you can be sure
you are not beyond love.
The dark will be your womb
The night will give you a horizon
further than you can see.
You must learn one thing.
The world was made to be free in.
Give up all the other worlds
except the one to which you belong.
Sometimes it takes darkness and the sweet
confinement of your aloneness
to learn
anything or anyone
that does not bring you alive
is too small for you.


David Whyte's poem, has become the impetus for me to keep opening myself to a greater life.  I think many of us have things, maybe places or people that tend to hold us back and keep us small.  Some of us are afraid that if we shine too bright -- we might appear threatening.  Someone will be upset.  We might expose where someone else is hiding their brightness.  

Take a look at your life, and see if you can identify one area where you are hiding out, holding back or playing small.  Dare to burn a little brighter.  Take just a step or two--or three in that direction.  Declare what you really want, and who you really want to be.  Ask for assistance, from your allies and from the Universe itself.  Life is waiting to support you.  You were born to shine.

Peace & Love -- Paris
