In full presence of yourself. Today is the day. To quite literally feast on your life, experience yourself in complete joy and happiness for all that you have achieved for arriving at your own door in celebration and love. You have put the time in to discover who and how you operate now, is the time for you to be with yourself in full self loving compassionate acceptance.
It feels right to share this work of poetry from west indies poet, Derek Walcott, in the midst of his quite lengthy works, this poem, short and concise and full of the richness of forgiveness comes as a welcome breeze in the explorations of our daily chaos as the world turns. Take this moment to ground into the feeling beyond the words and worlds of your space and melt into the flowing river of love’s greatest gift.
The time will come
when, with elation
you will greet yourself arriving
at your own door, in your own mirror
and each will smile at the other’s welcome,
and say, sit here. Eat.
You will love again,
you will love again,
the stranger who was your self.
Give wine. Give bread.
Give back your heart
to itself, to the stranger
who has loved you all your life,
whom you ignored for another,
who knows you by heart.
Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,
the photographs, the desperate notes,
peel your own image from the mirror.
Sit. Feast on your life.
Each day is the opportunity to be a full feasting day filled with love. We are a work in progress, we are more than what stares back at us in any mirror that presents. We are here to be loving to ourselves and those we meet, to share ourselves in the aches and pains and joys and loves of being alive. Experience the sparkle, diamond, rainbows of your life. Enjoy all of it, embrace the deepest space of your truest self and when it is time, sit and feast on your life exactly as it is with no judgment, no apologies only love for you. All of you.
May you feel connected, comforted and full of peace.
Today. Now. Always.
May your heart open in ways never before possible
revealing the deepest truth of your fullest knowing.
With Infinite Love and Gratitude
