“No one can enter the river wearing the garments of public and collective ideas. He must feel the water on his skin. He must know that immediacy is for naked minds only, and for the innocent.” ~ Thomas Merton, Raids On The Unspeakable
Does your true desire call your name?
Does the sound of the roar frighten you?
Step off the bank.
Wade in. Get your feet wet.
Even if you can’t see the bottom, you must trust.
Let the water flow over you. Let it wash the fear away.
Practice. Be the best at who you are.
Float until you learn to swim.
Go with the ebb and flow.
Ride the waves.
Write those words until the book arrives.
Stroke by stroke, paint the canvas until the picture appears.
Snap away until the perfect photograph emerges.
Chisel away the rock until the shape that calls you is formed.
Play the chords until the song sweeps your soul away.
Show us what moves you.
