Sunflowers grow upwards toward the light, tall, beautiful,
stems rigid with growth
I try the same way to grow upwards toward the light but…
I lose hope each step I take a petal falls away. I used to
think this was the way of dying/Depression.
Drowning more & more each passing moment, yet I
realize instead it is a way of growth. The petals fall
behind & beneath me. I droop a little more with age.
Getting riper each step I climb.
So much occurs in a life… all I can do is observe, taking
note of every feeling that arises, every moment a lesson,
a chance, an opportunity for love As yours falls away to
others ~like the petals all around you~ you no longer are
dying, your transforming, becoming more powerful!
Willing to simply feel blessed. Blessed be to all the
creatures. Feel the light Be light Watch the petals fall into
your lap & Embrace the change
