Words of Courage

 What might the “one true voice”
be saying to you?

 

 

The following is the last stanza of a longer poem by John O’Donohue.

from For Loneliness

Allow all your loneliness time
to dissolve the shell of dross
that had closed around you;
choose in this severe silence

to hear the one true voice
your rushed life fears;
cradle yourself like a child
learning to trust what emerges,
so that gradually

you may come to know
that deep in that black hole

you will find that blue flower
that holds the mystical light
which will illuminate in you

the glimmer of springtime.
                  
—John O’Donohue

    I am familiar with the deep black hole. I have to search for the light. My true voice wispers to me, “Trust”.
