Being in our place of delight

I love the way e e cummings links the others’ believing in us with our taking the risk of delight.

This insight is a massive relief for those of us who feel we must earn our rest and play.

I wonder, what is your place of delight and what enables you to step inside?

~ e e cummings quoted in yesterday’s post Revealing the human spirit: We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch. Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit.”
