When I woke up yesterday morning, an image flashed before my eyes that almost made me laugh. It was as if I could see “Life” standing at my front door with Its hand outstretched saying “Come with me. It doesn’t matter what you did yesterday or last year or what you never did. Today is a fresh start, a new beginning. Step into it!” Later that morning, I was driving along the river and a red-tailed hawk flew in front of my car to the other side of the road, grabbed a snake, and flew back across my path toward the river.
I read a wonderful Ram Dass quote a few days ago that said, “The next message you need is always right where you are.”
Come, come, whoever you are
Wanderer, worshipper, lover of leaving.
It doesn’t matter.
Ours is not a caravan of despair.
Come, even if you have broken your vow a hundred times
Come, yet again, come, come.
