And a Day - Courage to Change
Three hands of change:
Dexter, to Clutch
Sinister, to Release
Diviniter, to Understand
Today, one year after honoring a promise to read every day, I have mostly succeeded. Some days I read more, some less. Some days I read without understanding. Some days I knew without reading. Some days turned into a Year and a Day of days.
Every day started with intent. I used my will to search within texts to find value that was not always immediately apparent. I sought three items of note, even when only one stood out. I let go that which did not ring true for me, keeping sometimes only bare bones, a word here or there or a whisp of an idea.
After a while voices began to rise within me, speaking urgently to the intent. They spoke of light and laughter and the road not traveled. And I responded, adding my own voice to the three-fold scraps I found within other's writings. I found that my voice was ever more the voice of my Goddess, ringing through my own poor understanding, making me as a torch held high to see my my own path.
A day later, this day later, I work my Will. I begin another Intent, to complete the writings and to make them available to others. They are not my words after all, they belong to You.
Three acts to complete the Year:
Accept that which I cannot change
Grasp the courage to change that which I can
Ask for the wisdom to know the difference
And as I Will It, So Mote It Be!
