Along the Way

I found it was

possible to find

our way back

to our hearts.

I found that,

for every single

thing I gave up

along the way,

for every broken dream

and every person

I couldn’t reach,

there was an expansion

of the tender space

I had come to know

as the source

of true peace,


and happiness.


This pain

you feel

is not separate

from the pain of

the world.

But it does not

define who or what

or where you are.

You must keep


Don’t look only

for relief

or some explanation

or label

to describe

what is on the surface.

Don’t look

to the world

for this.

You may find

these kinds

of answers.

But they will be

surface answers.

Look deeper.

Keep searching

until your heart

begins to speak


Always listen

to your heart,

even if it seems

so subtle that you

have to strain

just to feel some kind

of faint whisper.

It will

become louder.

May it lead you
