Refuse to fall down

"Refuse to fall down.

If you cannot refuse to fall down,

refuse to stay down.


If you cannot refuse to stay down,

lift you heart toward heaven,

and like a hungry beggar,

ask that it be filled—

and it will be filled.


You may be pushed down.

You may be kept from rising.

But no one can keep you

from lifting your heart

toward heaven—

only you.


It is in the midst of misery

that so much becomes clear.

The one who says nothing good

came of this,

is not yet listening."


Clarissa Pinkola Estes - From The Faithful Gardener
