There is a grace approaching
    that we shun as much as death,
    it is the completion of our birth.

    It does not come in time,
        but in timelessness
    when the mind sinks into the heart
    and we remember.

    It is an insistent grace that draws us
    to the edge and beckons us surrender
    safe territory and enter our enormity.

(From Stephen Levine, BREAKING THE DROUGHT:
Visions of Grace, Larson, 2007).
