Mindful Musings: Jan 25

“The Gift of Every Step”

By: Forrest Rivers

            My mind is racing

            As a preoccupation with today’s worries consumes me

            My heart pounds harder and my chest feels heavy as lead,

            I inhale a long deep breath and then exhale

            My heart’s pounding rhythms subside

            And my chest begins to loosen,

            Remembering that God is this moment

            I acknowledge the majestic forest I walk through

            The forest acknowledges me back–

            With a thick blanket of mountain mist,

            My vision clouded

            I rely on intuitive sense to guide me along the steps

            That my faithful feet know all too well,

            Climbing higher still

            I grow inspired as the top draws near,

            With every step

            I feel the illusion of separation start to dissolve

            As I chart my path back to the Eternal One,

            Arriving at the mountain top I discover:

            I AM and I HAVE BECOME.
