There is a place for you of unconditional belonging.
You may be blessed with knowing this from birth,
or you may have to name yourself a seeker
and find the kindred you long for.
When you feel alone,
free yourself from the despair of believing
that you need to betray your authenticity
in order to belong.
When you expect ease in your relationships
remind yourself that togetherness
is nurtured rather than born.
May resentment and shame never claim
the space of compassion.
May you trust wisdom’s presence
and befriend vulnerability.
When the delight of your togetherness sputters,
may you make a practice of expansive wondering
and be an affirmer of dreams.
As each new day in your life unfolds
may you experience belonging
as the ground of your becoming.
