Trust Your Vision

by Stephen Levine

Original Language English

Trust your vision
     make it whole
     hold it like the Navajo
     his solemn desert oracle
     in quest of shaman passage
     gaining his healing chant
     guiding him through life.

Hold the vision
     constantly rising
it is the way nature works
     through you
it is the only self
     an everchanging underdream
a vision (if you see it)
     up to you
to make real.

Act on your vision
     and pray that you are blessed.

-- from Breaking the Drought: Visions of Grace, by Stephen Levine
