Turtle’s Lesson

20160928 XPicture

*Note – please enjoy this post from one year ago! I have an early appointment today.

9/28/16

A turtle
sits on a log, sunning,
soaking up the
sun’s rays
even as he
wears his
protective shell –
he stretches out
all of the
parts he can
to feel the
warming rays.

His journey
to this log
was slow,
methodical,
as Turtle
can teach you
a lot about time,
purpose,
determination,
focus.

When turtle
is finished
on the log
he moves toward
and slips into
the nearby water.

And then feet
that were awkward,
even if steady,
on the land,
pull through
the water
like the flippers
on a diver,
as turtle
moves through
the water,
free of the
heaviness of its shell,
moving freely
in this aquatic realm,
it is almost
effortless –
he is free.

And you wonder
why turtle
would crawl
out of the water,
onto land,
where it appears
he has to work
so much harder
to get where
he is going.

Maybe turtle
doesn’t think
or worry about time –
as Turtle teaches
you to be
“steady as you go.”

And as there
are two sides to Turtle –
so do you
walk along
on your journey
in this Life –
soaking up
the sun when you can,
moving about your day,
with purpose,
determination,
focus –
until you
move inward,
maybe sitting in the silence,
or immersing yourself
in an activity you love,
that brings you Joy –
when you forget
about time
and effortlessly move
into this flow
of dreaming,
creating,
being.

And in this moment
are you not like
the turtle in the water –
merging the
two sides of You?
You Are
both physical and spiritual.

Let each side
come together
to help you
through this Life –
feeling the freedom
that Is within You always,
as you remember
to move with the Flow,
the Flow of Love
that resides
within You –
helping you
move effortlessly.

You Are Free.
You Are Free!

Hi, my name is Sandy. Welcome to You Are Love Now! On my journey of Awakening, in meditation, I was nudged to begin writing what was coming through my consciousness, from my Higher Self and beyond. This happens almost daily and I have been encouraged by those who read these inspired messages to share them with a wider audience. These messages come through me, but they are received from a Higher Source than what my mind could create on its own. I present these Poems of Awakening to you, dear soul, as we travel this spiritual journey together. And the message that I always feel from these writings? You Are Love Now. Perfect. Whole. And always so very loved. If these messages speak to you, I invite you to follow this blog so you may receive the ongoing messages as they are posted.
