hoping...

"Expect that a miracle is about to manifest."

"The Mystery never leaves you alone.
Behind your image,
below your words,
above your thoughts,
the silence of another world waits.
A world lives within you."

-John O'Donahue

that is my new motto from here on out. I'm going to send it on to Stacey (Independent Chick)as well. I think she'll love it.

it's a goody isn't it? I'm going to use it as my mantra for the time being. I'm hoping it helps me be more patient because i truly suck at it. And I'm trying, trying to say grounded while I wait for just an itty bitty miracle....well, itty bitty in the big scheme of things, but very big for me.....

the mystery....i just want a peak at the mystery!

Independent Chick said...

I do love it! Thank you Princess for sending it to me and thank you Dana for putting these words out there today. I have read it over a few times. Good things are set to happen...for all of us.

And Dana, I would love a peak...just a little, wee one. But I'm holding out on the faith that the Mystery will never leave me alone...

IC...oh, me too. I'm kind of a glutton for mysteries which is why I am in the field of counselling. I guess you could categorize me as a multi-tasking mystery seeker and solver. I seem to like to track down a few at a time. but there is ONE, just ONE I want to know the answer to. The rest, I can wait for....and enjoy the time along the way.

And the longer I wait to hear the result of the mystery, the less confident I am that I am going to hear the result I am really hoping for. I SO don't want to be disappointed. I've had more than my share of those. In fact I think I could wallpaper an outhouse with disappointment....and that's where they should be housed too!

Amazing words; deeper than the snow and higher than the clouds. They stop me in my tracks and cause me to look over my shoulder.

Thank you.
David.

i am so moved that John's words and life are so treasured by so many ... like a seed that fell to the ground and died so that more would come. Actually that's bollocks - i wish he were still here to write more and drink more with us
