The Invitation

Oriah Mountain Dreamer

doesn't interest me what you do for a living.
I want to know what you ache
and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart's longing.It doesn't
interest me how old you are.
I want to know if you will risk looking like
a fool
for love
for your dream
for the adventure of being alive.It
doesn't interest me what planets are squaring your moon...
I want to know
if you have touched the centre of your own sorrow
if you have been opened
by life's betrayals
or have become shrivelled and closed
from fear of
further pain.I want to know if you can sit with pain
mine or your own

without moving to hide it
or fade it
or fix it.I want to know if
you can be with joy
mine or your own
if you can dance with wildness

and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes
cautioning us
to be careful
to be re
