I just had to share this inspiring poem which had me in tears. So real and raw. Was shared by Candace Moore… the inspirational yoga teacher… Wow… Stay true to yourself.
The Invitation, by Oriah Mountain Dreamer
|It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living
I want to know 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
I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool
for your dreams
for the adventure of being alive.It doesn’t interest me what planets are squaring your moon…
I want to know if you have touched the center of your own sorrow
if you have been opened by life’s betrayals
or have become shrivelled and closed
from fear of further pain.
I want to know if you can sit with pain
I want to know if you can be with joy
It doesn’t interest me if the story you are telling me
If you can bear the accusation of betrayal
I want to know if you can see Beauty
I want to know if you can live with failure
It doesn’t interest me
It doesn’t interest me who you know
It doesn’t interest me where or what or with whom
I want to know if you can be alone
