An important discussion is going on in the forum of this site about the difference between hope and acceptance. Since forum access is closed until Thursday, I offer this to my readers now in blog form. (You can find the discussion by going to the forum and clicking on "old forum."

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 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.

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. :)
