From ‘What to Remember when Waking’

From ‘What to Remember when Waking’

To become human
is to become visible,
while carrying
what is hidden
as a gift to others.

To remember
the other world
in this world
is to live in your
true inheritance.

You are not
a troubled guest
on this earth,
you are not
an accident
amidst other accidents,
you were invited
from another and greater
night
than the one
from which
you have just emerged. – David Whyte

“Waking up into even the most ordinary day is a discipline, a test of our ability to hold the interior world, where we have just been reimagined and revolutionized, with the moving, tidal, seasonal, not to be controlled, physical world we are just about to enter.” David Whyte
