The Pond



A frog in a pond,
sits on a lily pad –
and what if he
wants to get
from here to there –
to cross the pond,
or move to
get a different

Does frog not
begin to hop
from one pad to the next –
at each stop,
does he look to see
where the next pad
may be –
his next landing point
on his Journey to There –
does he wait for
the ripples of water
to move the pads
to where he thinks
they should be?

Or does frog begin
to hop to the
next pad near
and to one after that;
does he look up then
and see where
they have led him?

Are there not an
infinite number of ways
to get from here
to there or
wherever you wish
to journey in this
experience of life?

Have you not
experienced times
when you looked up
and wondered,
“How did I get to
this spot here?”
Have you not been
following the lily pads
as they appear –
taking you on a Journey?

And if you wish
to change direction,
are there not ripples
that you create
that will help to mark
a new direction
that you wish to follow?

And on your
Pond of Possibility –
can you enjoy watching
the path unfold –
as there is no right
or wrong way to turn?

And as frog must feel
content at times
to sit and look around
at the beauty and the
peacefulness of a pond –
might you pause
to reflect and enjoy
being exactly
Where You Are?

Are you not
Where You Are –
right now?

As You Are Love
in every moment –
may you feel the
Peace of be-ing
Where You Are –
in the Pond of Possibility
of You.
