Up not down

The Celts understood that all beginning risks the unknown; a blessing was intended to be a shelter of light around the pilgrim and the place.*
John O’Donohue

You’re still here,
Imagination somewhat battered but basically
Now reaching deeper to connect with your special abilities, and,
Raising yourself up,
You continue to pursue your first avowed intent.

And so,
Being the alchemist you are,
May good and beauty come from that which has been bad for you,
Or difficult,
Or painful.

*From John O’Donohue’s Divine Beauty.
