Let it affect you
It is of you
Came from you
Hear what it has to say
Listen with an inward ear
Because no one is going to tell you truths like this
Like it holds tomorrow in the palm of its hand
Because for all you know
It is the key to your every last breath
And your every wakeful passage into life
More stars and rivers and canyons – and love
More love to fill the chasm
That is space
That is everywhere
That is us
We are the passion that feeds life
When it spills forth from your mind
– from the love that is in your heart –
It is there to affect you
It is there to protect you
To fill and project you
Because you are not alone
You are not all one
And the one
Is not all

This is excellent… to focus on the void that we all have to fill… and there is room for everyone, we just have to let it happen.
All of us together. Thank you, Bjorn!

very comforting, and inspiring too, from the view point of a relationship.
a chasm can be pretty frightening but perhaps it can be crossed.
I think it’s worth a try! ❤️
