Can you befriend the wild aliveness in your heart?

Can you listen into searing depths that beckon you?


Can you welcome this unscripted moment with its fierce threshold to everything?

Can you open to life’s sweet and bitter tastes of love?


Can you let humility guide you?

Can you end your attempts to control eternal mystery?


Can you remember your value as vast and inherent in each breath?

Can you recognize the precious value of others?


Can you meet conflict, despair and sorrow as potent messengers of love?

Can you come ever closer to love’s touch?


Can you embrace paradox, knowing another’s laughter and tears as your own?

Can you live with your heart on the line?


Can you rest in the depth of compassion for another’s suffering?

Can you remember kindness for your own suffering?


Can you come to this moment empty and alone?

Can you risk yourself for a breath of eternity’s breeze?


Can you come home, Here, simply clothed in the gift of your aliveness?

Can you come home, Now, as you are?
