For a New Beginning                                                                                                                  by John O’Donohue

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

For a long time it has watched your desire,
Feeling the emptiness growing inside of 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 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.
