The following was written by a friend of mine after I did a Hand Analysis for her. I found her insights to be beautifully poignant and believe there are many people in the world who will read her words and find them applicable into their own lives. They certainly had an impact on me.
In a world that runs on doing, I am told to Be!
Where I’ve been taught to prove, I am told there is nothing to defend!
When life has made me scared, I am told to trust.
Where I was directed to think of all others, I am told to consider me.
What I learned to be, I am told to dismantle.
How I know to Be, needs to shed yet another layer.
Who I came to know, I am told to rediscover.
The maps I have are obsolete, the terrain has changed.
The challenge is not the change itself, but the process.
Where I come to be, is always temporary. Change is the constant.
Fear is the fuel, trust is the challenge.
My life purpose runs through me as the quiet engine that propels, yet the map it follows is not spelled out.
We come to live out what we chose, yet, I am told I have nothing to prove!
My search is unending, my destination hazy.
Life has proven to show me the darkest hours and the lightest heart in a matter of a moment.
Yet, I am told to trust.
My prayer for the first time:
Shed light on where I am, help me trust the process and take the fear away from my heart.
