Artist and Seeker

As the artist knows
a finished work is what remains
after many parings and subtractions,
so the true spiritual seeker knows
enlightenment and wisdom emerge
only after much surrendering
and relinquishment.

Patience and Trust

There are realities
you will not understand
until it is time
for you to understand them.
There are truths
you will not speak
until it is time
for you to speak them.
There are decisions
you cannot make
until it is time
for you to make them.
Be patient and trust.
Let your life unfold
as it must,
and in the unfolding
remember always you are
unconditionally loved.
