Clearing by Martha Postlewaite

Do not try to save the whole world or do anything grandiose.
Instead, create a clearing in the dense forest of your life and wait there patiently,
until the song that is your life falls into your own cupped hands and you recognize and greet it.
Only then will you know how to give yourself to this world so worthy of rescue.

This was sent to me following an exchange over on Facebook about not being able to see the wood for the trees - something I've written often about here on my blog.

Perhaps a reminder that when we can't see the wood for the trees - just sit down!
