The Magic of Metaphors.


"The best spiritual instruction is when you wake up in the morning and say, 'I wonder what's going to happen today?'" ~ Pema Chodron

Exactly...what if something wonderful might just happen this day?

What if in one swift moment all of your troubles might melt away?

And each of those wishes from all of those years before?

What if they were just right here, simply waiting... for you to greet them at life's door?

My dears.. imagine, just for one moment, if you will... that the spark of potentiality might bring life to all metaphors...

To have our hearts really smile...or, to be so completely filled with love..

Oh, and wouldn't it be wonderful if the trees truly whispered when we walked?

And, what if all moonbeams indisputably danced beneath our feet?

Would it cause you to ponder a moment, when first pulling back those sheets?

My dears, what if all of these things were just right here for you to see...

Would life then hold the promise of a million and one stars?

And would you wake up each day simply marveling at all that you are?

My dears...curiosity and wonder are the great 'cosmic glue'...

That holds our hearts open to all that we may see...be...and do.

Namaste, my most beautiful friends... and may we all embrace the wonderment that greets us each day.
