Honor


Laurie's Gentle Healing Notes

I honor this me

who struggled to get to this place,

this me who remained focused

when it was unclear

where to go next,

who was always willing

to reach out

never tiring of searching

and never giving up hope

of a gentler way.

And so, taking one more leap,

I set her free.

– In honor of all who dare to return to the heart, embracing a gentler way

going to a strange place

who is being

their bad advice –
though the whole house
began to tremble
and you felt the old tug
at your ankles.
“Mend my life!”
each voice cried.
But you didn’t stop.

Be patient

Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart
and to try to love the questions themselves
like locked rooms and like books that are written in a very foreign tongue.
