Today I speak calmly and I walk slow
'Cause I used to rush to plant seeds of love in lands it couldn’t grow.
I carry this smile on my face
'Cause I've cried too much
But now, when I close my eyes there is grace
And when I open my heart there is space.
Today I feel stronger and happier
‘Cause love is the way and telling the truth a game I live to play
But I also know how little I know
I know enough to practice what I believe
Enough to sleep in peace and wake up whole
Enough to know when to just let go
We need love for a true life
We need divine confidence to be funny
Nature doesn’t thrive because of money
I think to understand life is a matter of courage
To feel safe is a matter of trust
To trust is a matter of the heart.
We come and we go
We laugh and we cry
The choice is not always a choice
But to walk slow and to meet our destiny
Takes listening to the inner voice…
... The voice of our hearts.
