Forum Message re Hope or Acceptance
- Category: Self-Help
This is an ongoing meditation and anchoring place for when you are reaching and stretching and growing toward more recovery and healing without awareness to help you know where you are and where you are going.
I said to my soul, be still
and wait without hope,
for hope would be hope for the wrong thing
wait without love,
for love would be love of the wrong thing
there is yet faith,
but the faith and the love are all in the waiting.
Wait without thought,
for you are not ready for thought
So the darkness shall be the light,
and the stillness the dancing.
--T. S. Eliot from East Coker in The Four Quartets
This poem describes where you are and and is your guide. Let your own darkness be your light. Learn to rest and dance in your own stillness.
The rest will come. :)
