Whom have I in heaven but you? And there is nothing on earth that I desire other than you. (Psalm 73)
I am being schooled by a friend who is dying. I am being reoriented in longing and belonging.
It’s time to set aside the things that make you a plodder and not a dancer. It’s time to give things away.
It’s time to forget about what people think of you. It’s time to own your desire.
Don’t try to change the world. Instead, find what it is that makes you come alive and pursue it as though death were not, and the world will change behind your back. But remember that wasn’t the point.
You are the point. So for God’s sake and yours, forgive yourself.
Mercy is majesty.
