A wise man told me that sometimes we try to leap over the puddles in life, but, land right inside the puddle. One foot is reaching and poised for the leap, while the other remains firmly planted in my limited vision of what is, rather than simply letting go to the pure infinite potential of the unknown.
But, the truth is, in order to leap, we’ve got to spend a little time in the air without the firm foundation of the ground underneath our feet. The unknown is essential in order for there to be an expansion of our reality. How many times have we been afraid of the unknown?
Today, let’s promise ourselves to take both feet off of the ground and leap into our truth.
What if kindness was the way of the land?
What if we wished the best for our fellow man?
What if we felt blessed when they did well?
What if there was no judgment and no hell?
What if we really loved our planet?
What if we never took the sun for granted?
What if the oceans never had pollution?
What if we used clean energy as a solution?
What if we didn’t eat meat for awhile?
What if we let the animals run wild?
What if we really loved our enemy?
What if we listened rather than sought war so handily?
What if everybody could read?
What if we all had something to eat?
What if “nice” was the only way we knew to be?
A dolphin saved the world today.
It saw that it was drowning.
It whispered a prayer and dove
To the depths of darkness.
The world floated deeper
While it was following
Towards the bottomless abyss
Would it be missed?
The dolphin screeched and summonsed
Its school of oceanic friends.
They pulled the world up by its straps.
The world rose to the surface gasping for air.
“Thank you, dear dolphin!”, cried the world.
But, the dolphin, simply was not there.
The dolphin wanted no fanfare.
Finally, the world cared.
