New adventures ahead
Though the same old joyous presence
This eternal soul that I’ll never get rid of
Gosh, it’s always there!
Nagging me to do what is for my highest good
Calling me to let go of everything that is no longer serving
Reminding me that I am not my body
This journey will never end
And I am glad
But at times it makes me mad
In a good way
Like the madness I see in Rumi
And the sages who’ve walked this Earth
Life continues to happen through me
And growth and challenges continue to meet me
And then there’s this body
What a huge responsibility!
We’ve got a mind connected with all other people’s minds
And who knows what’s going on in their heads!
And our hearts, oh our hearts!
Our hearts sometimes ache if we don’t do everything they want!
It’s madness I tell you
We have to sleep this many hours or we’ll lose our sanity!
We’ll be so out of whack that we lose touch with reality!
And we have to chew up other parts of life
To keep the life of our body alive
But without all this,
What else would there be to do?
