To celebrate our daughter’s birthday this week, I’d like to share with you a poem she wrote in 2007 for my first website.
Asked to express the journey to finding our Self, here’s what she wrote:
Imagine a turbulent ocean, ravaged by storms
Imagine the contourless fears shut inside Pandora’s box
Imagine a seabird with its wings clamped down, afraid of flight
Imagine a single lotus shut tightly against the darkness of the light
Imagine being brave enough to reign in the storm
Imagine being brave enough to open the box
Imagine the seabird spreading its wings and taking flight
Imagine the lotus blossoming amidst the dawn
Imagine the morning light rising behind you
Imagine the spirit soaring inside you
Imagine stepping off the vast cliff before you
Divine wind at your back
And knowing that someone-
Will be there to meet you
Arms open wide in welcome
And a smile stretching wide across their face.
This is how it feels when you connect with the diamond!
Thank you, Jessica Ferguson.
Never stop looking up!
