Poem - 

FOR A NEW BEGINNING

John O’Donohue

In out of the way places of the heart
Where your thoughts never think to wander
This beginning has been quietly forming
Waiting until you were ready to emerge.

For a long time it has watched your desire
Feeling the emptiness grow inside you
Noticing how you willed yourself on
Still unable to leave what you had outgrown.

It watched you play with the seduction of safety
And the grey promises that sameness whispered
Heard the waves of turmoil rise and relent
Wondered would you always live like this.

Then the delight, when your courage kindled,
And out you stepped onto new ground,
Your eyes young again with energy and dream
A path of plenitude opening before you.

Though your destination is not clear
You can trust the promise of this opening;
Unfurl yourself into the grace of beginning
That is one with your life’s desire.

Awaken your spirit to adventure
Hold nothing back, learn to find ease in risk
Soon you will be home in a new rhythm
For your soul senses the world that awaits you.

 


Formal Practices

Here are short mindfulness practices for you to try: simply bringing your attention to the present moment and seeing if you can meet whatever is here for you with a kind and open heart.

Don’t worry that your mind wanders! This is completely natural – it’s what minds do. Just taking a moment to notice where it has been, and then very gently guiding your attention back to the breath … again and again.
