On comparing

Do not compare yourself to them.
That is a source of eternal unhappiness.
Instead, rejoice that you have me,
rejoice that they have me, too:
Focus on eternity, and the lack will disappear
focus on comparing and watch yourself be consumed

but quiet: Listen for my voice
then walk upon that solid ground

Gifts of eternal thickness

Somewhere, someone is praying for you,
perhaps by name, perhaps in praying for the world;
but even if the latter is true,
the thing about prayer is that it can never be spread too thin:
Somewhere, someone is praying for you.

You can be naked here.

You can be naked here.
You can be you, unadulterated,
beauty and disease, all.
You can be naked here.
