Come my dear and lay your burdens down.
I’ve been to the Sanctuary
to the space beyond time
to breath in the silence.
Can you hear it calling you?
The place of quiet stillness
like the silhouette of the lone oak tree
against the vast winter sky.
Here you can rest
away from the rush and struggle.
Come find your place.
Take refuge from the worry, the fear, and the cruel voices inside.
Relinquish the driving force to do, to become
to achieve some dazzling state of perfection.
And too, the whispers, cries, and demands
who beckon you
rely on you
and look to you for solace
Release it all.
Return to the speed of bone and blood.
Be nourished and restored.
Find your peace and your place.
Discover the cosmos that dwells deep within
Your own beautiful Heart.
