Fall in Deeply

Fall into your sadness, dear –
don’t hold back
I want you to know
It has an infinite capacity for loving.

There are a thousand reasons to be sad.
If they are yours, embrace them.
G-d never asked his children to be happy
always. You can love whilst weeping.

Here is the secret:
You don’t have to be perfect to love
perfectly. A broken heart is full of light
Sadness keeps the great fire burning.

Don’t be ashamed. Fall in deeply.
The great Loving that you are
wants to spill out quite brilliantly.
G-d will kiss you so sweetly if you let it.
