Mark Nepo's Weekly Reflection: NOTICE

marknepo11.10
Imagine a lantern in an open boat,
the light flickering as the boat drifts
in the night lake.

Now imagine it rains and look closely
at how the drops plop in the lake
and thud in the boat and bead on
the sides of the lantern.

Notice how the flame doesn’t
go out.



A Question to Walk With: Describe the boat that is your life, the lantern that is your heart, and the small flame within your very center that doesn’t go out.

This excerpt is from my book of poems, The Gods Visit.


Mark Nepo’s new 3-session webinar will center on the gift and work of relationship—for it is only through the bonds of relationship that we can help each other stay awake. While no one can live your life for you, the deep paradox is that no one can make it alone. With our society fractured in so many ways, restoring the life of relationship is more crucial than ever. So, whether you are tending your relationship with a significant other, a friend, a family member, or a colleague, we each need to become skilled at empathizing with others without giving ourselves away. In this webinar, we will explore the inherent gifts and limitations of relationship and examine the recurring struggles that we must move through to stay authentic with ourselves and each other. All to build a better net of resilience between us. Visit Live.MarkNepo.com for details.
