Cherish It All

The pure energy of the light
Pours into each of our hearts
Animating our every breath
Offering us life in its myriad expressions

We forget this miracle
And lose our connection to it
So beguiling is form
And so pernicious conditioning
We become transfixed
Bewitched by the shadows

When gratitude and wonder
When connection with nature
When recognition of true source
Are forgotten or ignored
We lose our way
And become almost insane

And then, through grace,
Something may happen
That causes us to stop
It may tear at our reality
And plunge us into despair or grief
We may rail against it
And think it the worst thing

But it is truly a messenger
Come here to speak to our hearts
Telling us to remember

The wise and humble see this truth
And cherish every part of life
With all its heartbreak and suffering
And with all its forgetting and remembering

Nothing is excluded from love.
