Relearning Loveliness


The bud
stands for all things,
even for those things that don't flower,
for everything flowers, from within, of self-blessing;
though sometimes it is necessary
to reteach a thing its loveliness,
to put a hand on the brow
of the flower,
and retell it in words and in touch,
it is lovely
until it flowers again from within, of self-blessing
-Galway Kinnell

"Metta is the ability to embrace all parts of ourselves, as well as all parts of the world. It relieves us of the need to deny different aspects of ourselves. We can open to everything with the healing force of love." Sharon Salzber
