“Dance is the hidden language of the soul.” – Martha Graham
The butterflies are out in full force now.
Camouflaged when wings closed.
Exploding into a work of art when open.
Taking flight with ease, finesse and delight.
Dancing, floating, circling and embracing flowers.
Celebrating their journey from caterpillar to fruition.
Not regretting or remembering the struggle that got them to butterfly, knowing it was necessary to bring the journey to completion.
Letting go to fly lightly, widening circles.
I live my life in widening circles, Rainer Maria Rilke
“I live my life in widening circles
that reach out across the world.
I may not complete this last one
but I will give myself to it.
I circle around God, around the primordial tower.
I’ve been circling for thousands of years
and I still don’t know: am I a falcon,
a storm, or a great song?”
We live linearly but life is circular, seasonal, a woven tapestry with each thread necessary to create the masterpiece. Dance with delight whether caterpillar, in the middle of metamorphosis or butterfly in flight. Widen your circle each day.
“Creativity makes a leap, then looks to see where it is.” – Mason Cooley
“Leap, and the net will appear.” – John Burroughs
Open the windows and let fresh air into your thoughts
Breathe in the moment deeply, separate from tasks, identities and responsibilities
Be fully present today
Untangle, unwind, release
Be open to different answers than your own
The answers that already exist within you now, beyond the noise
No more wading in the shallow waters of scarcity and limitations
Take the leap into the deep end of abundance and gratitude
Run off the dock, take flight, chase the ball
Explore and wander
Keep growing, learning, creating, imagining, unlearning, dreaming, questioning, stretching, receiving, trusting, believing, embracing, loving
Evolve, unfold, become, expand, transform
See the miracle in the moment, see the miracle within you right now
“God is always bigger than you imagined or expected or even hoped.” – Richard Rohr
