Untether My Spirit

In leaps  and with great  ease when the heart leads .  Struggle becomes delight and light fills the

cracks of the bits that seemed broken .  A smile slowly begins to open and widen across a

beautiful face . Even in a dim light the eyes are seen and are dancing .  A moment of whimsy

opens the way for a life  of cherishing  joy .

Leaving space for silence and saying yes to thoughts that are unknown,

and before you know it the bridge has been crossed and you are on the other side .  It’s how

to find out who you are .

Dear friend  ,  delight in those leaps and see beyond . .

The Red Robin on the Path ….continued

She  felt thunder in the earth .  It came on so suddenly that she lost her breath .  The blood  was

racing her veins now and she was , both , frightened and excited  .

The instantaneous  silence magnified the anticipation  .

What was  coming ?   What was the thundering earth going to bring ?

 

The Red Robin on the Path : The Gates are Opening …….continued

She stood  , her breathing light , and wondered about the life of this  bird . A seemingly sweet

Red Robin that had kept coming into view . It reminded her of some sort of a dance .  But what

dance might this be ?  The forest has  a secret life she thought and what will it reveal to me

today ?

Glimmers of sunshine streaming through the trees in places . It was hopeful and playful .  It

made her smile .  She felt , suddenly, like twirling  about .  Then the Robin , startled by

something  unseen ,  flapped it’s wings  rather furiously and it frightened her as well .

Red Robin on the Path : Gates are Opening

The Mysteries  of the forest began  opening up . revealing  marvelous bits of life . Beautiful ,

winged creatures flying between the trees while vibrantly decorated butterflies danced amongst

the sleeping rocks .  The songs of the forest coming together like a chorus .

As she walked her awareness of the unique harmony of  forest  life expanded

and felt  it as an invitation to delve deeper into understanding  herself as well .  oooh just then…

she caught a glimpse  of a Red Robin on the path .

 

The Red Robin on the Path ….

She walked with purpose now feeling fit and paying  attention to the muscles in her legs .  She

thought about how being physically fit was a comfort  to her . It nurtured a sense of

independence  . It lulled her into a place of confidence  , however misleading .

Sometimes she liked to stop along the path and try to breathe it all in .  The

longevity  of some of the trees and the delicate  nature of the smaller blooms optimistic  in their

struggle to grow .  Glancing at the ground and wondering about the exposed roots of a tree.

Does the tree , somehow , sense it’s vulnerability ?   Does it find a way to protect itself  by

strengthening itself in other ways ?

She was startled out of her thoughts by  rustling sounds  and the faint , deep

cries of …what is an animal ? Or perhaps simply  the winds howling so as not to be left out of

the mysteries of the path .
