A Storyteller’s Credo

Tell me your story, so I can tell others.

How your animal body protected you when you needed it most.

How your mind played tricks on you to keep you from falling into despair.

How your spirit keeps on breathing into your being, calling you to be even when you cannot muster the energy.

Tell me how you heal.

 

Tell me your story, so I can tell others.

For your blood will heal mine,

Your tears will weep for me,

and your suffering will be my greatest joy.

 

Tell me your story, so I can tell others.

And I will weave a beautiful cloak full of the ten thousand things

and the ninety-nine names of God,

and we will walk together and be One.

 

Tell me your story.
