Let There Be Light

Postby Sonya Ki » Sun Aug 24, 2014 8:38 pm

I am not a morning person
but my hubby is...

This morning at 6 am we packed up
our blue beach chairs
and headed for the ocean
in the car we listened to a CD of
Reverend Rose's Sunday sermon
she talked about judgmental thinking
how we make up stories about
other people and situations
infusing ourselves with fear and
negative emotions
this kind of perspective prevents us
from seeing the beloved in everyone

We arrived at the shore in time
to view the sun dancing across
the pink horizon, leaving a trail of
golden footprints in the playful waves.

Setting up our beach chairs
to face the gently rolling surf
David took out his book on the "Course of Miracles"
the lesson for the day was:
"God is my strength in which I place my trust"
together David and I meditated on this truth
feeling it sink into our bones

I was reminded of a heart opening exercise:
mentally I asked God to help me experience His love
I waited in the quiet cove within
slowly I could feel the flower of love
unfolding to bright interior rays
a strong whiff of jasmine
carried by lofty sea breezes
pervaded the salty air.

After our meditation
David and I raced towards the
beckoning azure vastness, diving in
we floated buoyant, blissful
Two lotus blossoms on an endless, eternal sea

WOW ...
What a setting ... the beach
Nice poem but didn't really see why
you have to meditate at the beach
when you go there for fun.
Unless you live nearby ...

For me, it's more of a story
than a poem.

But I like it!
