Dreaming awake


You can only ever do your own thing….

Second day of June ~ mid-month time of the year.  How we going with our plans… where have we come on the road we’ve chosen?

Some surprises I’m sure ~ many twists and turns.  The road is never straight… letting you see ahead for miles.  That’d be making it easy… where’s the fun and surprises.  Yes, the mystery.  Yeah I know keeps you awake some nights… or plays havoc with your digestion.

Which brings me to the body.  My body, your body… how it’s feeling, what’s it saying?  Do we listen to its invaluable direction?  Or do we decide we know best… trust the rampaging thoughts that scream across our screen.  Immerse ourselves in trivialities… as the clock ticks on, eating up our time.

What does it take to come to?  A good shake, a strong dose of caffeine?  Nah… often its a mighty shock, that tumbles our foundations; gate crashing our revelry.  For a moment we remember where we are and what we’re doing.  If we’re lucky we listen and hear… ‘change your ways… NOW’ she roars.

Her voice raggedy and hoarse from the constant shouting.  She has your attention for just a second.  Eye to eye you stand.  Later you awaken… stretching your arms over your head.  A big gulping yawn… eyes pry open, it’s still dark but lights not far.

You remember the dream… it seemed so real.  Like it really happened.  You scramble to remember all she said… it was a she, who was it?  You grab a pen, you scribble down all you remember.

It’s more than the words… there’s something you feel.  A freshness… something is different.  The voice now a memory, but you still feel its resonance.  There’s something important you need to remember… something you need to do.

‘Stay on the track…’ words linger.  Trust is all you need; and of course complete adoration of yourself.  Bits coming back… it was something about Love.  You remember falling asleep, her arms around you… held so close.

Love changes all, the path twists and turns… your destination hidden.  You know inside you.  It’s clear, that pure light that guides you forward.  All around, many are there…  you see them, you know them; they come when you call them.

So much a mystery and yet it’s simple.  Love is all there is… and Life holds you to her tightly.  You’re loved more than you’ll ever understand… it’s divine, it sacred, it’s what’s at the core of everything.  Every single thing in this vast universe.

Yes in body for a short time… make it count, do what needs to be done.
