What You’ve Been Waiting For

Standard

Always learning,
and what a privilege.
Teachers everywhere,
never in short supply.
Just look around you;
open your eyes.
Listen, feel,
taste all these gifts,
constant miracles.
Inhale the scent of possibility,
throw your arms open wide
and dance on the edge
of your own becoming.
Look over the edge
into the great abyss of the unknowable;
DIVE IN.
There is nothing to fear!
When you take the big leap
you will fly
or you will land in the arms
of the loving divine.
Either way,
it’s beautiful, it’s perfect,
and it’s what you’ve been waiting for
your whole life.

Never Be Done

Standard

Raw. Vulnerable.
Exposed.
Strong. Confident.
At ease.
Grief, then joy.
Exhaustion, then motivation.
Emptiness, then fulfillment.
For so long I thought the goal
was never-ending bliss.
Then I grew up (a little).
Now I see that to be fully human
means to experience
the full range of human emotions.
Each one has a story to tell,
a lesson to impart.
And we are meant to learn
our whole lives.
We will never be done.

Keep Digging

Standard

I discovered
that I can let Life surprise me.
When I realize I’m the Fool,
my mind is open to new learning.
When my heart is broken
I have a chance to see the light
shining from the million tiny pieces,
more beautiful than all the stars
in the darkest night sky.
Sometimes the deepest pain
holds an even deeper treasure.
May I trust
and keep digging.

Tapping In

Standard

Going to bed early tonight…
hoping for a sound sleep.
Exhaustion has crept up on me
and my patience has flown away.
Sometimes I wish life came
with an instruction manual,
but I guess in the end,
there is no right way or wrong way,
it’s just the way I’m taking right now,
and I can learn with every step.
It’s a process of refinement,
of discernment, attunement,
discovering ever subtler
levels of consciousness,
finding the currents of connection,
the threads that run through all of us,
tapping in to what is meaningful,
lasting, helpful, loving, and kind.
