The heart-work of images imprisoned within you

“The work of the eyes is done. Go now and do the heart-work on the images imprisoned within you.”
― Rainer Maria Rilke

I was listening to Rilke as I ran the curve of the ocean shore. I will never tire of the early morning, the sun in its constancy. For as long as there has been our Earth, she awakens us.

Yet I also consider the heart-work of the images imprisoned inside. The daily sunrise form fragments of this heart-work. The constancy is light.

How do I work to bring light? The light of an individual, free from filters and diffusers. Able to shine completely.

The light of a community. All the colours of the rainbow. Every single element critical to the whole.

The light of human enterprise. People conspiring together to create something impossible to create alone.

The image I have is one where our relationships together are built on a platform of dignity and respect, infinite love, and care beyond measure. Where the work we do is sacred business. And the Earth we walk is treated as we would treat the most magnificent palace.
