The moon greeted me this morning.
The upper half was overhanging and slant in the blue sky.
What does she balance on above that empty space?
Pure belief that she is held and so am I.
There is no doubt Only trust.
I too want to feel that blind leap of faith that an invisible net will catch me before the fall.
The lure of the illusion of groundlessness is strong
And I try as I might to truly believe like the magic of sea water in a glass.
The salt settles only if it is absolutely still.
Then it can embody its true nature.
There is only one way and that is to act.
It is a mean trick that fear plays;
that I’ll appear a fool, hurt myself or others.
I want to let the magic kiss me on the cheek and be that darling I know I am.
There is only a door that is blocking out the light and the night.
There is no view or glimpse of what beholds on the other side.
I can grab ahold of the doorknob
pry it open as the hinges squeak and creak adding to the mystery.
Now all I have to do is step over the threshold of my mind and take that leap.
To be moon’s darling in day and night.
We dance as one in our exuberant embrace.
There is no separation
no fear to interfere with this serene space
I share my stories honestly as an attempt to find meaning and connection. My intention is that by sharing our stories we ultimately heal ourselves and the world. I want to be a beacon of light to show that it is possible to find your footing and inner strength even when the world seems to be in chaos.
