A Compass

“Calm the winds of your mind,
and the waves of your heart will subside.
Still the wind and the waters,
to reveal a great map of  stars.

A galaxy reflected in your soul.
Depth expanding in every sacred direction.
Stare into these waters…

Know this map of lights…
is inconceivable to the mind.
Feel your heartbeat and stare
with sweet-longing,
tantalized by the promise of Joy,
and Adventure.

Set course in the direction,
your heart
feels most inspiring…

Fill your sails
with a more gentle breeze,
and give thanks for this map of stars,
and this compass
that feels.”
