Chalice of Our Being

Wise words from Dag Hammarskjold seem appropriate for the new year.

chaliceEach morning we must hold out the chalice of our being

to receive,

to carry,

and give back.

It must be held out empty –

for the past must only be reflected in its polish,

its shape,

its capacity.
