For Those Who Are Exhausted.
Some of you know that John O’donahue is my favorite poet philosopher. This came across my screen this morning, and it felt as if it should be this week’s revitalizing moment. This is excellent restorative advice. Take a minute to read and soak in the words. In fact, I invite you to read it three times, consider John’s invitation and let the words seep into your being…
For Those Who Are Exhausted
You have traveled too fast over false ground;
Now your soul has come, to take you back.
Take refuge in your senses, open up
To all the small miracles you rushed through.
Become inclined to watch the way of rain
When it falls slow and free.
Imitate the habit of twilight,
Taking time to open the well of color
That fostered the brightness of day.
Draw alongside the silence of stone
Until its calmness can claim you.
~ John O’Donahue
May your weekend be just what your soul needs it to be.
