For A New Beginning


My dear friend Mari shared this poem by John O’Donohue with me yesterday, in loving support and celebration of the “new beginning” that I am embarking upon.

It was inspired by my last newsletter message announcement and it couldn’t be more perfect.

I thought you might also enjoy and find it inspiring and resonant with what you might be embracing in your own life currently.

The images I’m sharing along with it are from a wedding attended yesterday of very dear friends – it was an amazing all-vegan wedding too I might add.

The sunset sky was on fire and wildly passionate with creative sparks of new beginnings. Perfect August 1st celebration of Lammas after the Aquarius Full Blue Moon.

For a New Beginning
by John O’Donohue

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 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 gray 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 of plenitude opening before you.

Though your destination is not yet clear
You can trust the promise of this opening;
Unfurl yourself into the grace of beginning
That 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.
