The One Thing I Know (Christine Kane)

SONG: The One Thing I Know by Christine Kane

BOOK: The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment by Eckhart Tolle

POEM: Summons by Robert Francis

Keep me from going to sleep too soon
Or if I go to sleep too soon
Come wake me up. Come any hour
Of night. Come whistling up the road.
Stomp on the porch. Bang on the door.
Make me get out of bed and come
And let you in and light a light.
Tell me the northern lights are on
And make me look. Or tell me clouds
Are doing something to the moon
They never did before, and show me.
See that I see. Talk to me till
I'm half as wide awake as you
And start to dress wondering why
I ever went to bed at all.
Tell me the walking is superb.
Not only tell me but persuade me.
You know I'm not too hard persuaded.

QUOTE: "Only connect! That was the whole of her sermon. Only connect the prose and the passion and both will be exalted, and human love will be seen at its height. Live in fragments no longer." ~ E. M. Forster

  1. Wow. Thanks for the link! That's so amazing. And A New Earth is one of my favorite books of all time, so it's an honor to be lined up with Eckart. Great to discover you and your blog. It's really gorgeous!
