Flying on the Ground

When a bird gets free,
it does not go back for remnants
left on the bottom of the cage.

Excerpt from What’s Not Here
-Rumi

When the Universe is on your side, you are the bird who flies in the presence of lazy cats. You are the food you need to survive. You are the waterfall that lifts as it falls.

When the Universe is working in your behalf, trees are shade, not obstacles. Mountains have a cleared path to their unseen tips and though the tips can not be seen from the path, the stones along side your feet applaud you as you walk to your destiny.

The demons you carry will reveal themselves. The angels will remind you there is no judgment. Only love from Source. From you. In you.
The dried crust of fears fall onto the sides of the path and join the stone’s chorus of encouragement., having perfected their purpose.

As the agreement to life strengthens, as your toes trust themselves, your body becomes less and your spirit becomes more of what it has always been.

The Universe lives within you.
