The Garden Gate

 It is easy to say you want to trust someone, however it is not an easy thing to do. I believe we all feel unsure when faced with the unknowns. That terrible uneasy feeling in the pit of your stomach, called fear.
However, each step we take is toward the unknown. I can only make the best choice in the moment with what I know to be true in my heart at the time. I am continually doing that cosmic dance with the unknowns , the should haves, what ifs.  Like a game of chess - two players on the board of the game of life - you move this way, I move that way, you advance, I retreat.

I envy those who can plan their lives in daily planner organizers. They always know where they are going to be next week at 2:00pm, or next month or even next year.  Some folks I know have their days mapped out in retirement, where they will live, travel to, how they will spend their leisure days, reading,  what movies they will watch.  I can only seem to manage to live one day at a time.
I made a choice in this moment to relax into the rhythm of life and choose to trust the Creator of this divine Universe that I will be taken care of, loved, feel safe, open to compassion toward other living sentient beings.
I struggle to understand the meaning of my small but not insignificant life, examining the tiniest detail; I  look to the secrets of nature through her plants, her animals, the wind , the rain, the sunshine that blesses us all.
Like a pile of newly hatched baby chicks huddling together against the cold, each interconnected, depending on each other for support, warmth, warning of danger -- that is the course of human connectedness, taking each others hand to care for, love, nurture support, trust each other.

That gentle dance we perform, holding the door open so we can come together in harmony and allow the miracles of our daily lives unfold like the rhythmic waves of the ocean meeting the shore.
 Life is filled with choices! Today, I will walk to the edge of the borders of my mind and learn to trust the gift  of the moment -- the gift from the Divine!
