+ This post offers an inspirational poem by John O'Donohue that can be useful for any new beginning.  There is a particular new beginning for which I am offering this poem.  On February 1, 2021, the Facebook group SPIRITUAL EXPLORATIONS 2020 will become THE NEW FAITH FOR THE NEW EARTH Facebook group.  I got to see this poem because it was posted recently on the Weaving Home Facebook page.


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 growing 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 gray 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 yet clear

You can trust the promise of this opening;

Unfurl yourself into the grace of beginning

That is at 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.

From his books 'To Bless the Space Between Us' (US) / Benedictus (Europe)
