I'm Just Watching the Wheels.


"People say I'm lazy dreaming my life away,
Well they give me all kinds of advice designed to enlighten me,
When I tell that I'm doing Fine watching shadows on the wall,
Don't you miss the big time boy you're no longer on the ball?" ~ John Lennon
 
Oh, and isn't that a brilliant testimony to life these days?

I often think of this song during these moments of simply being. I think of John Lennon as he stepped outside the limits of the life he knew so well, and on into a life not yet discovered.

And, he did it simply to enjoy those moments. You know which ones I mean, right? Those moments when life pauses gently, and just long enough for us to breathe in.

It's those moments when our children screech with delight as they race through a cloud of bubbles.

It's those moments when we watch a hummingbird come to visit outside our window.

It's those moments when all of the notes of this life come together in a most beautiful symphony.

And, it's those moments that make this life worth living.

I think John got it right when he left it all behind, to embrace those moments he most wanted to know.

Namaste, my most beautiful friends...and for today, may we all have a chance to watch those 'wheels go round and round...' and may those wheels, fill us every corner of our spirit.
