AN INVITATION

by Katie Harmon-McLaughlin

An invitation
For you

Today
Right here
Right now
In the middle of everything

In these details
Of this moment
Of this life

No pre-requisites required
Just this simple noticing
Wherever you are

Just a heart opening
Not even sure exactly why
Or to what

Just this sweet unexpected grace
Offered to you
As whatever you most need it to be
Peace
Belonging
Disruption
Hope

Right now
The invitation
Is for you
For right now

You don’t have to go somewhere else
Or be someone else
To receive it

It is in this person
This task
This conversation
This silent awe

What could be more important than this?

There will be other invitations to come
But this one expires
As soon as the moment
Has passed

Each moment arriving
Holding in its open palm
Another invitation
For you
For another
Right-here-right-now
Glimpse
Into the heart of the holy
That is right before you
Right within you
In the middle of everything
Wherever you are

  1. Thank you! What a wonderful gift of expression that you have shared today.

  2. Thank you for sharing your gifts of Love, Insight, Expression – which bless me this morning!

  3. Katie, thanks so much for this. I used it at our Samish Reunion just before I sent everyone off to walk the Labyrinth, go sit silently in the beauty that is Samish, or get lost in mandala coloring pages. It was a perfect sending forth.
