On a Clear Day

SoulCards(c) Deborah Koff-Chapin
I climb to the top of the mountain, lean forward into the clouds, they part, touching my cheeks like moist kisses, and I can see Forever.
The angel within becomes an angel of peace, clarity, and we share serenity, all the world, as One.
All around me is Light shining through. 
She creates the clouds upon the currents of galaxies passing through our existence -- many planes where we are all One.
These clouds do not obscure the light of insight, but rather create the aura of knowing, softening any harshness so that it can be taken into Self and molded into a gently caressing vessel of Love.
Every water droplet forming these clouds shares infinite moments of gratitude, and carries the unshed tears of Bliss ...

On a Clear Day, You Can See Forever ... 
On a clear day
Rise and look around you
And you'll see who you are
On a clear day
How it will astound you
That the glow of your being
Outshines every star
You'll feel part of every mountain sea and shore
You can hear
From far and near
A word you've never, never heard before...
And on a clear day...On a clear day...
You can see forever...
And ever...
And ever...
And ever more. . .

As I sat this evening preparing for sleep, I opened the Tao Te Ching randomly, to find the message perfectly appropriate for summing up many of the conversations that Ron and I had today regarding our planned move to another state, and how all the various pieces need to come together, yet we cannot control many of them. The below is from the version of Stephen Mitchell:

If you realize that all things change, 
there is nothing you will try to hold on to.
If you aren't afraid of dying,
there is nothing you can't achieve.

Trying to control the future
is like trying to take the master carpenter's place. 
When you handle the master carpenter's tools, 
chances are that you'll cut yourself.


  1. Wow, this is so powerful for me to read this morning, as I was having a conversation with my teary niece just last evening (her boyfriend broke up with her)... she is so young and in a tender place right now (just 21), perhaps not the best time for her to be open to understanding that all things change, all is passing, and this is not a bad thing at all...that the desire to control is fear and when we learn to release this and recognize that we are not in control, and that this thought path does the opposite of making us feel safe the fear eases and trust/faith become the cradle that supports us and comforts us.

  2. Beautifully said, my dearest Laura, and, oh, how my heart goes out to your niece. Love brings strength as well as fragility, as we each journey into our knowing, yes?

  3. ...a feather on the breath of God...
    I think it was Hildegarde of Bingen who said that -- or Julien of Norwich -- one of those mystics.


Thank you for stopping by. With open heart, I welcome your thoughts however you wish to share them, whether via personal email or as a comment here. ~ Bright Blessings ~
