Day Thirty Seven — Feast on Your Life

posted by Melanie Lutz

In full presence of yourself. Today is the day to feast on loving thought.

Love after Love

The time will come
when, with elation
you will greet yourself arriving
at your own door, in your own mirror
and each will smile at the other’s welcome,
and say, sit here. Eat. 

You will love again, 
you will love again, 
the stranger who was your self.
Give wine. Give bread. 

Give back your heart
to itself, to the stranger 

who has loved you all your life, 
whom you ignored for another, 
who knows you by heart.


Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,
the photographs, the desperate notes,
peel your own image from the mirror.


Sit. Feast on your life.

 

–Derek Walcott

Feast on your life.  How brilliant.  What a deliciously gorgeous way to celebrate who you are.

May you feel connected, comforted and full of peace

Today. Now. Always.

May your heart open in ways never before possible
revealing the deepest truth of your fullest knowing.

With Infinite Love and Gratitude

Melanie
