This is from the book entitled: Benedictus A Book of Blessing by John O' Donohue.
For a New Beginning
In out of the way places of the heart,
Where your thoughts never think to wander,
This beginning has been quietly forming,
Waiting until you were ready to emerge.
For a long time it has watched your desire,
Feeling the emptiness growing inside of you,
Noticing how you willed yourself on,
Still unable to leave what you had outgrown.
It watched you play with the seduction of safety
And the grey promises that sameness whispered,
Heard the waves of turmoil rise and relent,
Wondered would you always live like this.
Then the delight when your courage kindled
And out you stepped onto new ground
Your eyes young again with energy and dream
A path plenitude opening before you
Through your destination is not yet clear
You can trust the promise of this opening,
Unfurl yourself into the grace of beginning
This is at one with your life's desire.
Awaken your spirit to adventure;
Hold nothing back, learn to find ease in risk;
Soon you will be home in a new rhythm
For your soul senses the world that awaits you.
