Trust everything, because…

How could one be convinced
to decide upon what one wants
and then commit
with all one’s might
to bringing that thing
into reality when,
open to the day
and deciding nothing
life delivers the most unexpected pleasures?

I have come to see
that my ideas about life
and the way I would like it
are quite puny indeed
in comparison
to the majestic ideas
of the universe.

At times, I throw my hands up in despair
sure that God has gotten off track
and taken a left to hell
instead of a right to heaven.
But I am humbled
again and again
on my knees and begging forgiveness
seeing that these detours through hell
were exactly what was needed
in order to crack me open
to the light.

Trust everything
for there is nothing
that is not your path.

Love and courage,

Leah
