gateway to You

in this life everything serves wholeness & healing.
even when things fall apart & end badly, in shreds,
all nevertheless serves to bless our unfolding growth
as divine beings discovering our potential
to transcend events & actions in this hungry world.

i keep on returning to You, Shiva, for in You
there is comfort & strength to persist & persevere
with the many worldly duties that call for presence,
attention & compassion. i am glad to be able
to serve, even in the smallest most humble of ways,
for every single act is a gateway to You.
bless the innocent heart as Your holy dwelling place!
