Cycling

The days are growing longer,
getting lighter,
moment by moment,
bit by bit –
in a subtle,
almost imperceptible way.

Does it not take
patience and a
state of mind
to move through
darkened winter months?

And as the Cycle of Seasons
is woven through your life –
is it not a familiar feeling
to turn inward,
to reflect,
to take a look
at where you are –
in the quiet space
that winter months provide?

And do not the
Cycles of the Seasons
remind you of the
cycling of a spiral –
the ebb and flow of movement –
so familiar yet always bringing
surprises and new opportunities
as you move through
these cycles –
seeing things from
a different perspective,
seeing yourself through
different eyes –
as you spiral through the
Cycles of your Life?

Are there not times
when the movement
seems to flow at
breakneck speed
and then times when
you wait with
beautiful patience –
noticing the first glimpse
of light that lights up
a long dark night –
for do you not need the dark
to see how bright the light?

As you spiral and cycle
through the light and dark
of Life –
can you embrace what
each moment
brings to you?

Be patient
as you move through
the Cycles of your Life –
becoming more Aware
of the Light Always in You.

Always Light.
Always Love.
Be Aware of
the Love That
Shines in You.

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
perspective?

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.
