Mountains, oceans, deserts & more;
Mother Nature’s gifts of geographic diversity.
Over time, ancestors found ways of overcoming
challenging barriers and experiencing personal discoveries.
Yet for all their seemingly impressive conquests
many failed to find a most precious treasure; true happiness of their heart.
Looking for happiness, contentment & love out there,
somewhere; maybe it’s just around the bend, they thought.
After diligently polishing our own jewel by going
in, day after day, rather than searching outwardly,
many have found some success dismantling falling fences
of separation bequeathed by past generations.
Blossoms coming into this world with rusting fences
between them & other fragile blossoms.
Seeing clearly mirrored reflections of each other
in sunligtht, breathing the same, freely offered, air.
Removing jagged fences gifts us,
our neighbors & our descendants
experienced freedom to be our loving selves
& to be kind & fearless with each other.
Courage & gentle patience, dear ones!
Trust in liberating heart’s intuition.
“We are here to awaken from our illusion of separateness.” ~Thich Nhat Hanh
