Self Portrait - David Whyte

It seems that "The Invitation" poem by Oriah, was actually "inspired" by David Whyte's self portrait:

It doesn't interest me if there is one God
or many gods.
I want to know if you belong --
or feel abandoned;
If you know despair or can see it in others.
I want to know If you are prepared
to live in the world
With its harsh need to change you;
If you can look back with firm eyes
Saying "this is where I stand."
I want to know if you know how to melt
Into that fierce heat of living
Falling toward the center of your longing.
I want to know if you are willing
To live day by day
With the consequence of love
And the bitter unwanted passion
Of your sure defeat.
I have been told
In that fierce embrace
Even the gods
Speak of God.
