Do not withhold
your words from the world
out of pride or anxiety
or concern for success;
rather entrust them
to the winds of the universe
that the wings of the Spirit
may receive and enfold them
and carry them to those hearts
and minds that secretly wait for them
with unspoken need.

Powerful true words
Happy to receive your response. Peace! ~Dennis
😊 back at you!
Thank you Dennis for sharing. Truly one never knows how inspiring or motivational a blog can be. I have 63 pages and 206 post I set as private, in the moments before I were going to post. Always the thoughts that why would my musings be of interest to others. Yet, you inspire me… Simply with this post. Thank you!
At many points in my life I stopped writing. Eventually I would start up again with one project or another. I often thought of my brother when I would be conflicted over the purpose of my writing. My brother loved to fish. He could spend an entire day fishing without catching a single fish or even getting a bite and he would say he had a good time. He simply loved to fish. Of course he loved to catch fish, but the fishing itself had its own reward. Some of us have to write, to create. I hope you can love the writing itself and leave the rest to fate, to God, to the universe—whatever. I wish you peace. WRITE ON, fellow writer! ~Dennis
I love this explanation in addition to your lovely poem!
Thanks, Marga. I appreciate your response. Peace and Joy! ~Dennis
I love it Dennis 🙂 You know I have struggled at times whether to share some things…I like thinking about it this way…and I will always follow my heart ❤
Sometimes it’s a tough call, but our hearts may, indeed, be the best kind. I have know doubt that your writing has inspired many and will continue to do so. Peace! ~Dennis
Thank you so much , Dennis! I am humbled by your generous words ❤
😎 Couldn’t resist the sunglasses. ~Dennis
LOVE (!) them 🙂
Too fabulous! I’m going to post the new poem I just wrote right away!
Words have such beauty and power….and like you say, we never know how they are going to touch someone who needs to hear exactly what we have to say!
Peace and joy and blessings on your writings to a fellow poet and blogger! ~Dennis
Thanks, Dennis! It’s an honour to be considered a fellow poet! 🙂
Great advice. I’ll take it. 🙂
Gives me joy, Victor. Peace! ~Dennis
I have often thought a post wouldn’t be well received, only for it to become one of the higher viewed posts. I’m always surprised. Thanks for the confirmation.
I’ve had that same experience. Comes a time when we just have to put it out there, I guess. Writing is a gift that we need to share, I think, without over-thinking results. Peace! ~Dennis
It’s such a lovely thought, Dennis..
Peace and Love
Thanks you John. Have a lovely weekend. ~Dennis
Great words, Dennis. I hope you didn’t mind me tweeting it.
Glad you found them worthy of a tweet. ~Dennis
Thanks for your words of wisdom. I write for the love of writing and am happy when my words matter to others. 🙂
Inspiring. I am one of those character… now I am re-evaluating myself. Thank you.
I hope it will be a re-evaluation of growth in wholeness. Peace! ~Dennis
that’s my current struggle…
I think it is all of ours at one time or another. May you have moments of resolution that feel give you peace.
Thank you! I need to read this every morning.
Happy to hear it meant something to you. Never would have known had I not posted it! May you enjoy the gift of inspiration and feel free in its sharing.
Well said, Dennis. In some way, every genuine effort to express and share what lies within matters. It is intended to be a flow I think, Love living through us. We are the conduit, its voice in the world…
Can’t tell you how many times something like that has happened to me!
Agreed, and a very helpful image.
Very well said – thank you
And thank you!
My approach as well, Dennis. Lovely. Thank you for following Spirituality Without Borders.
You’re welcome. Happy to follow. Peace, Rita! ~Dennis
I came across these words by pure accident and they resonate with me. I hope to surmount my obstacles and to one day display my creativity without fear.
May you touch many lives!
