I swept into your life
Destroying all your carefully made plans.
I know you loved your achievements.
I know your intentions were pure.
But I heard your prayers to bring love to the world.
I took your offering at its word.
How could you hear the cries of a broken world
If you had not been broken?
How could you stand with the lonely
If you had never felt alone?
How could you speak with the powerless
If you had never known what it was to lose your own power?
Let go, my love, into the abyss of exhaustion.
Let go into the realm of everything gone wrong
Let go of who you thought you were
And become who you are
Deep in that abyss, I will meet you.
Swirling around you with my fierce, love-soaked grace.
Whisper my words
There is nothing wrong, there is nothing wrong, there is nothing wrong.
Soothe your mind as it barks its objections
Soothe your weary heart
Cradle yourself as your own beloved child.
Nothing to do, nowhere to go
Nothing to be.
Except who you are
My fierce grace is emptying you
Of all your striving
This fierce grace
Manifested in you, as you
Will illuminate a suffering world.
