Everything Is Waiting

Dear Spirit to Spirit friend,

David Whyte so eloquently puts it. If we simply pay attention- and look, and see... in the midst of the ordinary, we will understand that we are not alone. We will see how we are surrounded by and held in the intimacy of life.

Everything is here for us, if we pay attention ... and let ourselves see.

Everything Is Waiting For You by David Whyte

"Your great mistake is to act the drama

as if you were alone. As if life

were a progressive and cunning crime

with no witness to the tiny hidden

transgressions. To feel abandoned is to deny

the intimacy of your surroundings.

Surely, even you, at times, have felt the grand array;

the swelling presence, and the chorus, crowding

out your solo voice. You must note

the way the soap dish enables you,

or the window latch grants you freedom.

Alertness is the hidden discipline of familiarity.

The stairs are your mentor of things

to come, the doors have always been there

to frighten you and invite you,

and the tiny speaker in the phone

is your dream-ladder to divinity.

Put down the weight of your aloneness and

ease into the conversation. The kettle is singing

even as it pours you a drink, the cooking pots

have left their arrogant aloofness and

seen the good in you at last. All the birds

and creatures of the world are unutterably

themselves. Everything is waiting for you."

In Gratitude & Love, Joanna
