Today, I share with you a piece of poetry from one of my favourite poets, David Whyte.

When I read his words I feel there is no more to say.

What to Remember When Waking

“What you can plan is too small for you to live.

What you can live wholeheartedly will make plans enough for the vitality hidden in your sleep.

To be human is to become visible while carrying what is hidden as a gift to others.

To remember the other world in this world is to live in your true inheritance”

(Excerpt from ‘What to Remember When Waking’ from RIVER FLOW: New and Selected Poems Many Rivers Press.)
