Rising Higher Than Familiar

The Universe drips down through me

Its powerful downward motion

Will lift me into Itself and

Silence the part of me that

Will miss the ground!

Calling not with words but

Simple relief, It beckons me:

“Lift up your eyes! Raise your chin!

Breathe your life through Me!

Leave behind what’s familiar;

Take a chance with what you can learn!

You are good at what you know,

It’s what you don’t that I want to show

You, my child!”
