Quiet Mind Compassion Meditation with poem, "A Calling"

May 01, 2022

Julie Potiker leads you to a quiet, peaceful place through this compassion meditation. She completes the meditation with a poem, "A Calling", by Susan Frybot.

“A Calling”, by Susan Frybot


A calling

isn’t concerned about fame,

or interested in glory.

Callings are not providers of comfort

and sometimes lead to sacrifice.

And not everyone will answer

the loud cries

coming from something voracious

deep inside that’s

wanting to wake them

into living full-on with

purposeful passion.


“A Calling”, is from “Looking to the Clearing, Poems to Encourage”, by Susan Frybort.
