To celebrate our daughter’s birthday this week, I’d like to share with you a poem she wrote in 2007 for my first website.

Asked to express the journey to finding our Self, here’s what she wrote:

Imagine a turbulent ocean, ravaged by storms

Imagine the contourless fears shut inside Pandora’s box

Imagine a seabird with its wings clamped down, afraid of flight

Imagine a single lotus shut tightly against the darkness of the light

And now…

Imagine being brave enough to reign in the storm

Imagine being brave enough to open the box

Imagine the seabird spreading its wings and taking flight

Imagine the lotus blossoming amidst the dawn

Imagine the morning light rising behind you

Imagine the spirit soaring inside you

Imagine stepping off the vast cliff before you

Divine wind at your back

And knowing that someone-

Maybe yourself-

Will be there to meet you

Arms open wide in welcome

And a smile stretching wide across their face.

This is how it feels when you connect with the diamond!

Thank you, Jessica Ferguson.

Never stop looking up!
