The intention

Healing is both an exercise and an understanding,

and yet not of the will nor of the intention.

It is wisdom and a deeper knowledge of the daily swing

of life and death in all creation.


There is defeat to overcome and

acceptance of living to be established,

and always there must be hope.

Not hope of healing but the hope which

informs the coming moment and gives it’s reason.

The hope which is each man’s breath,

the certainty of love and of loving.


Death may live in the living

and healing rise in the dying,

for whom the natural end is part of the gathering,

and of the harvest to be expected.


To know healing is to know that all life is one,

and there is no beginning and no end,

and the intention is loving.
