WORDS LIKE LIGHT
Friday, August 19, 2022
Today I hope I can be a loyal follower of the present moment. As each moment makes its way across the landscape of the day, I don’t really need to do anything myself except quietly follow and be steadily surprised by what’s unfolding before me. I can be a quiet companion as the day discloses its surprises – a loyal supporter and admirer, going along with each moment just for the joy of seeing it and appreciating it. Of course, this day might lead me along some roads of discomfort or sadness, but even then I hope I can be faithful companion, just walking beside the infinitely wise present moment, watching and learning and being quietly thankful that I can follow such a sensible guide.
FOLLOWING LIFE (on Sanibel Island) This is flat country, perfect for following life, just floating along and letting life unfold the way it wishes to. You’ll wonder where it’s leading you, but light and warmth will work in thoughtful ways to comfort you, and millions of beautiful, benevolent shells will help you accomplish the feat of following life like a fervent, loosened up learner.
