Watching a river

‘Old Father Thames’ by Philip Dodson

Watching the river

It flows endlessly
It flows past
The water shimmers past
The sky is reflected in it
The river is looking for the sea

The river does not fear reaching the sea
The river does not hold back
The river does not wait
The river is brimming with energy for its journey
The river knows its purpose

The river is watched by a man
He sits and watches it pass
He wonders about the river
He is taken by its purpose
He is in awe of its mighty flow

The man ponders life
The man ponders his life
The man thinks about his purpose
The man thinks about his journey
The man pauses and realises he fears the sea

Let it blossom

We all have something within us, a seed, that is waiting to grow and blossom into a beautiful flower.

Our resistance to it starves the seed of the energy it needs to grow.

The resistance creates suffering within, as our soul wants the seed to grow and our mind sabotages it.

Let go of the resistance and let it unfold and let it blossom into a beautiful amazing flower.

We can shine if we want.
