Words of WonderEnough - David Whyte

Enough. These few words are enough.
If not these words, this breath.
If not this breath, this sitting here.
This opening to the life
we have refused
again and again
until now.
Until now.

by David Whyte


A few simple words from the prolific poet David Whyte, often shared on the world wide web. And in all their simplicity, the invitation to let them be true… What if this, here, now really was enough? How would that change how your breath flows in this moment, what happens to your shoulders when you open to this life as it is right now?

This weekend I came across one of the spontaneous little songs by the Bengsons, called ‘It’s enough‘. I guess it’s a theme for me this week! In that song I was struck by one line in particular: the world needs you more than she needs the things that you do. To be the human being rather than the human doing…

May we all find that space, again and again, where our doing can come from our being and where that is enough!


PS We practice touching in with that space where being is more than enough, every dat at the free daily meditations. Join us any day!
