What Is Most True

Give us strength

to stand firm,

to reach for what is

most true,

to find security

not in the things

we have been shown

to grasp,

but in our deepest core —

returning to our

natural place —

trusting those who have

made the trip before us —

reaching for others’ hands —

reaching ahead and behind,

gathering more strength

so that we may do

what we came to do

and share what we came

to share

as healers of our

own hearts.
