Thought For The Day

I came across this in a meditation reminder email, I think it's beautiful. I wish to live like that, also...strive to.

*I Will Not Die an Unlived Life*

I will not die an unlived life
I will not live in fear
of falling or catching fire.
I choose to inhabit my days,
to allow my living to open me,
to make me less afraid,
more accessible,
to loosen my heart
until it becomes a wing,
a torch, a promise.
I choose to risk my significance;
to live so that which came to me as seed
goes to the next as blossom
and that which came to me as blossom,
goes on as fruit.

--Dawna Markova, From "I Will Not Die an Unlived Life"
