The Invitation

Posted On März 14, 2007

Wurdest du jemals von jemandem dazu eingeladen auch nur einige dieser Fragen zu beantworten?
Stell dir für einen Moment vor, Arbeitskollegen, dein Chef, Partner, Freunde oder deine Familie hätten es getan. Wie würde es dich beeinflussen?

The Invitation

It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for, and if you dare to dream of meeting your hearts 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 center of your own sorrow, if you have been opened by life’s betrayals or have become shriveled and closed from fear of further pain. I want to know if you can sit with pain, mine and your own, without moving to hide it or fade it or fix it.

I want to know if you can be with joy, mine and your own, if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful, to be realistic, to remember the limitations of being human.

It doesn’t interest me if the story you are telling me is true. I want to know if you can disappoint another to be true to yourself: if you can bear the accusation of betrayal and not betray your own soul: if you can be faithless and therefore trustworthy.

I want to know if you can see beauty, even when it’s not pretty, every day, and if you can source your own life from its presence.

I want to know if you can live with failure, yours and mine, and still stand on the edge of the lake and shout to the silver of the full moon, ‘Yes!’

It doesn’t interest me to know where you live or how much money you have. I want to know if you can get up, after a night of grief and despair, weary and bruised to the bone, and do what needs to be done to feed the children.

It doesn’t interest me who you know or how you came to be here. I want to know if you can stand in the centre of the fire with me and not shrink back.

It doesn’t interest me where or what or with whom you have studied. I want to know what sustains you, from the inside, when all else falls away.

I want to know if you can be alone with yourself and if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments.

    Thx for your post. I would like to write my opinion that the cost of car insurance varies greatly from one coverage to another, given that there are so many different facets which contribute to the overall cost. One example is, the make and model of the vehicle will have a tremendous bearing on the purchase price. A reliable outdated family automobile will have a lower priced premium when compared to a flashy sports car.

    According to my study, after a property foreclosure home is bought at a sale, it is common for that borrower to be able to still have a remaining balance on the loan. There are many loan providers who aim to have all rates and liens repaid by the next buyer. Even so, depending on particular programs, regulations, and state legislation there may be several loans which aren’t easily settled through the shift of personal loans. Therefore, the responsibility still rests on the lender that has acquired his or her property in foreclosure. Many thanks for sharing your notions on this blog.

    taboo matter but generally people don’t discuss these issues.
    To the next! All the best!!

    Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything. However think of if you added some great graphics or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this website could certainly be one of the most beneficial in its niche. Terrific blog!

  47. Ashton   6. Juni 2023 15:11

    I think what you posted made a ton of sense. But, what about this?
    what if you typed a catchier post title? I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your blog, but what if
    you added a headline to possibly get folk’s attention?
    I mean The Invitation | Let's call it Steve is kinda plain. You could
    peek at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create post headlines to grab people interested.
    You might add a video or a related picture or two to
    grab readers excited about everything’ve written. Just my opinion, it
    might bring your website a little livelier.

  48. Franklin   6. Juni 2023 17:43

    Hi there! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog.

    have any ideas or suggestions? With thanks
