The Way of the Carer


You are a person of courage and integrity

If you care for a long time, you might find yourself standing alone, outside most organisations, institutions, structures, parties, groups.

You might find you are tremendously free, of all that.

If you care for a long time, you will have faced your naked , hidden self countless times a day, you will have been thoroughly stripped of any illusions you might have had about your own motivation and  strength.

You are a person of courage and dignity.

In the darkness you will have uttered your deepest cry, not someone else’s , not another’s slogan,  prayer, mantra, doctrinal or corporate mission statement.

You know Mercy; in your freedom you will have transcended fear.

You are a person of truth.

You are a person of  integrity and light.
