THE PHOENIX.............

 

THE CHOICE
THE WILLINGNESS
THE INTENTION
TO RISE FROM THE FLAMES
TO RENEW
TO SEE AGAIN
FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME.

That's so beautiful. Thanks for putting this on your blog.

Oh my word, this poem is already inspiring but then the last line, "FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME", totally makes this whole piece. It's not just that we rise again and let go and move on and start over...or that we have courage and faith to do this...It's that we see it as the "VERY FIRST TIME" as if there had been naught before. As if it's all that IS. Because it IS all that IS!!! LOL. :) I learned this in the rainforest. There is no "OTHER"; there only IS and it's right now. It' right now over and over and over....so in light of that I am always free. Thank you!

robin,
it is a matter of conditioning--forgetting and remembering and in the process learning what to let go of and most importantly remembering that you have had that glimpse and to never let go.

to remembering that all are free and that the chains that bind are the illusion of perception and choice.
mille grazie
namaste

It is time isn't it? And we must be mindful to keep the eyes open once we make that choice.

zirelda,
i try and see all moments as that time and each and every moment is the moment of choice.
thanks
