This is Who We Are


We are ordinary and magnificent
all at once.
When we can accept this
we will experience the ultimate freedom
born of fearlessness.
If we can live humbly
and yet wield our greatness wisely
we will be open, clear, efficient, effective.
We won’t need to shrink behind
illusions in a desperate attempt
to hide our shame,
and neither will we need
to puff ourselves up and prove
our worthiness to the world.
Completely ordinary
and extraordinarily magnificent
all at once–
this is who we are.
