Here are a few poems I’ve come across lately that honour the human spirit and the divine spark in each of us. I hope they give you pause and that you can enter into their mystery and beauty.
Bhagavad Gita (10:35):
I am a magnificent hymn,
A sacred chant.
Rainer Maria Rilke:
I want to unfold.
I do not want to remain folded up anywhere,
because where I am still folded,
I am untrue.
For Mercy has a human heart,
Pity, a human face;
And Love, the human form divine,
And Peace, the human dress.
To have the gag removed from one’s mouth!
To have the feeling today or any day I am sufficient as I am.
