Living Deep and Wide

Let us swing wide all the doors and windows of our hearts

on their rusty hinges
so we may learn how to open to life.

Let us see the light in the other and honor it
so we may lift one another on our shoulders
and carry each other along.

Let holiness move in us
so we may pay attention to its small voice
and give ourselves to life fully with both hands.

—Dawna Markova, except from Wide Open: On Living with Purpose and Passion
