Whatever happens to me in life,

I must believe that somewhere,

In the mess or madness of it all,

There is a sacred potential—

A possibility for wondrous redemption

In the embracing of all that is.   (From “Straight from the Heart:Reflections from Twentieth-Century Mystics by Dick Ryan)

Healing begins when, in the face of our own darkness, we recognize our helplessness and surrender our need for control. . . we face what is, and we ask for mercy.  (From “Straight from the Heart:Reflections from Twentieth-Century Mystics by Dick Ryan)

Some good words to ponder on!
