Awakening to a New Day
by Lauren Love
I want to wake up each and every day
with an anticipation of what shall unfold,
with a childlike excitement about what magic this day will bring.
I want to look out of the window
and notice the light on the trees,
the wind gently moving
the leaves and the aliveness of all that is.
I want to notice the light and the shine,
the sparkle and the magic
that underlies the misery and torment of the destructive mind.
I want to see beyond the fears
and illusionary stories that keep us constrained
and masked from the truth of who we truly are.
I want to stay open, to stay soft
and to allow myself to be seen even when it’s terrifying
and I want to burrow in my cave.
I want to look people in the eye
and truly see them and be seen;
to allow our souls to meet,
to witness without judgment,
to always see through the eyes of Love.
I want to dance with life,
to live in celebration and excitement
of all that is being created in the moment.
Mindful of every word, every thought,
every action, every meeting
and encounter that unfolds within the day.
I want to be free!
Truly free to see, to feel, to express myself
as the stream of consciousness that I am,
the soul that is me.
Free to love with the entirety of my being:
to surrender to Love.
As I am love,
and so are we,
let us see.
