May I have the courage today to live the life that I would love. To postpone my dream no longer, but do at last what I came here for and waste my heart on fear no more. ~ John O’Donohue

A note of apology: I was sick last Thursday, so I did not post the regular Daily Om Thursday. For those of you who missed it, I am sorry.

“We will only understand the miracle of life fully when we allow the unexpected to happen. Every day, G-d gives us the sun-and also one moment in which we have the ability to change everything that makes us unhappy. Every day, we try to pretend that we haven’t perceived that moment, that it doesn’t exist, that today is the same as yesterday and will be the same as tomorrow.” ~ Paulo Coelho

The two most important days in your life are
the day you were born, and
the day you find out why. ~ Mark Twain

Love After Love

The time will come
when, with elation
you will greet yourself arriving
at your own door, in your own mirror
and each will smile at the other’s welcome.

and say, sit here. Eat.
You will love again the stranger who was yourself.
Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart
to itself, to the stranger who has loved you

all your life. Whom you ignored
for another, who knows you by heart.
Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,

The photographs, the desperate notes,
peel your own image from the mirror.
Sit. Feast on your life. ~ Derek Walcott
