Chunks of Dense Matter

I pray that each one of us stays awake as we fall.

I pray that we choose to go into the abyss willingly and that our fall is cushioned by faith–faith that at the bottom we will be caught and taught and turned toward the light.

I pray that we don’t waste precious energy feeling ashamed of our mistakes, or embarrassed by our flaws.

[…} We are chunks of dense matter that need to be cracked open. Our errors and failings are chinks in the heart’s armor through which our true colors can shine.
