I want to know...

It doesn't interest me if there is one God, or many gods.
I want to know if you belong or feel abandoned.
If you know despair or can see it in others.
I want to know if you are prepared to live in the world with its harsh need to change you;
If you can look back with firm eyes saying "this is where I stand".
I want to know if you know how to melt into that fierce heat of living
falling toward the centre of your longing.
I want to know if you are willing to live, day by day, with the consequence of love
and the bitter unwanted passion of your sure defeat.
I have heard, in fierce embrace, even the gods speak of God.

-David Whyte

 Are you willing? To come to the centre? Open-hearted & wanting? I will meet you there. For the journey is all that matters.- MK
