A New Moon teaches gradualness
and deliberation and how one gives birth
to oneself slowly. Patience with small details
makes perfect a large work, like the universe.
What nine months of attention does for an embryo
forty early mornings will do
for your gradually growing wholeness.
Imagine if we allowed the moon to teach us the wisdom of patience. Or pregnancy to teach us the wisdom of slowness. What in your daily life might you take the time to observe to be reminded of the beauty and necessity of the slow unfolding of our souls?
