Do Not Try to Save the Whole World


Geranium Bloom
Geranium Bloom by Nancy L

Do not try to save the whole world 
or do anything grandiose.

Instead, create a clearing in the dense forest of your life
and wait there patiently,
until the song that is your life
falls into your own cupped hands
and you recognize and greet it.

Only then will you know how to give yourself
to this world
so worthy of rescue.

~Martha Postlewaite
