Kindred Spirit,

Along the sacred journey,

The ignited universe throbs within you

Staggering numbers of galaxies

Spiral through your genes.

An avalanche of stars tumbles through your veins.

This is your moment

Surrender into the inexhaustible Creator’s appeal

To press onward, no matter what.

You are both receptacle and birther of the cosmos.

Dance wildly as you pilgrimage

Into the blazing radiance of divine love.

If you don’t jump into the fire, who will?
