Speaking to the heart...:)

Read this on FB and sharing it:

"It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living.

What interests me is what you ache for

and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.

It doesn’t interest me how old you are.

What interests me is if you will risk looking like a fool

for love , for your dream ,

for the adventure of being alive.

It doesn’t interest me what planets are squaring your moon…

What interests me is if you have touched the centre of your own sorrow

if you have been opened by life’s betrayals

or have become shrivelled and closed

from fear of further pain.

What interests me is if you can be with joy

mine , your own,or someone's else

if you can dance with wildness

and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes

without cautioning us

to be careful

to be realistic

to remember the limitations of being human.

It doesn’t interest me if the story you are telling me

is true

What interests me is if you can disappoint another

to be true to yourself.

If you can bear the accusation of betrayal

and not betray your own soul.

What interests me is if you can see Beauty

even when it is not pretty

every day.

And if you can source your own life

from its presence.

What interests me is if you can live with failure

yours and others

and still stand at the edge of the lake

and shout to the silver of the full moon,


It doesn’t interest me who you know

how you came to be here or how much money you have .

What interests me is if you will stand

in the centre of the fire

and not shrink back.

It doesn’t interest me where or what or with whom

you have studied.

I want to know what sustains you

from the inside

when all else falls away.

What interests me is if you can be alone

with yourself

and if you truly like the company you keep

in the empty moments before being with someone else .

And somewhere there , deep whithin, the heart will get connected with the answers .
