"A Blessing for the Inward Way"
A BLESSING FOR THE INWARD WAY Tracy Shaw May you learn to dwell Below the surface of the days At home with the ebb and flow of Your own heart’s tides. May you find the womb space at the center of your Life, There grow wise in the sacred rhythm Of filling and emptying, Emptying and filling. There, held safe, May you surrender to the unknown As completely as the dark moon Empties herself into the secret embrace of her Beloved, the Sun. There may you cherish hope of renewal As tenderly as the crescent moon Cradles the dark in the curve of her arm, Enfolding, quickening with life new born. And may you always open to the flow of love As voluptuously as the moon at full, Until filled, overflowing, you pour Love’s gifts out into the world. So may you grow ever more intimate With the inward way, the deepening way, Where filling is emptying, emptying is filling ~ At one with the mystery, at one.
