Be Fully Alive



There is no love without loss.

No heart without heart break.

No joy without tears.


The trick is

not to annihilate

the ‘negative’

from your life.


But to hold it ALL

in your vast and ancient heart.


Be the sky!

Hold the thunder, the snow,

the sad moon,

the glorious Sun.

Hold it all.


And you are free!

To love.

To risk.

To fail.

To be fully alive.
