The sun rises without you –
birds sing their morning songs, and
the cat plops in your lap whether
invited or not.
Coffee brews effortlessly, once started
and the aroma blesses you
with that warm feeling of being cared for.
Hunger waits until the body is ready
Why think of food yet?
The day starts,
whether you do or not.
You do not have to figure it out
to make it happen.
Learn to receive, little one.
Respond when invited, but
do not move too quickly to action.
The sunrise is a beautiful blessing
which points the way
to true freedom.
It simply unfolds.
Do you see it?
It is right before you.
