why wait?

we don’t have to wait for life to be perfect, to have joy.

we don’t have to wait for life to be just right, to love.

why wait?

the miracle, the grace may just be that we can love and have joy even in the midst of ours and the world’s pain. we don’t have to live only in our pain, in suffering.

an open heart, our open hearts, have the capacity to be with all of what life is – the pain, the joy, the loss, the love. to be present with all of what life brings, is to be alive, is to be awake.
