The Bread Broken

     There is no finish line to keep you from running free but even freedom can be a weapon if left to gnaw on itself. You cannot hide either your hope or its freedom. You must share your hope so others can hear, follow and leave their own closets of fear. Leave yourself no other option, cut off all escape routes fearing not the grief or chaos nor clinging to the spring and peace.
     Gratitude will ground and steady you and your innate goodness will keep you safe so keep your foot on the base, your heart. Tis not a wish which can vanish in the night, it is the prayer of love which cancels the debts of the past so that you can walk boldly into the sunrise, every day a new day, a clean piece of paper.
     Remember to tend the source in everything you do so that life becomes a ritual of honor to the giver of the breath. Lose not the feel of the earth underneath your feet so that the mud can remind you that even that which is not perfect or clean can make you squeal with delight if you are accepting.

It is, after all, at the beginning and end of the day, your choice.

Well Said!

Yes, choice! It is so easy to forget that we are responsible for our own life. Beautifully said :)

In this beautiful prayer I sensed that we are not free unless we share with others and have gratitude for all that we have received. We are not free if we keep to ourselves, hiding out with our fear, suspicious of others. There's a feeling of opening up here..on letting in..of becoming a vessel of giving and receiving. Love it! Love what you write here Beth!

And to each of you, you are the bread crumbs from the broken bread that I follow. Blessings.
