Walking the Fenceline

Walking the Fenceline

February 06, 2019

I met an antelope
In the woods
Him longingly
Walking a fence line
So wanting to be on the other side

I pause, watching…
Big open land just opposite
‘Why don’t you run free– that way?’

He momentarily considers
His other option
Straying off course
But shortly returning
To walking the fence
Not noticing
At the one place
He stepped away
A tree had fallen
And created a pass

I am struck
Deeply with irony
I feel his heart
His absolute yearning to go
‘This way’

I shed a few tears with him
‘Don’t we all know this well?’

He keeps walking
No knowings of ‘failure’

Ten feet from the corner
He stops
Not comprehending
This human construct
‘Oh, oh, please please keep going
You’re almost there’
He ponders
Weighs his options

And once again
Follows the nonnegotiable
Pull of his heart
Passing the corner
He is free!!!

I cry a little more
In joy
Taking in the deep lesson
Of never giving up
On the strong call within
To go a certain way
Even when it appears
To be against all odds…

I spent most of my 30s in a self-imposed, rigid mediation practice. Why? I so desired to KNOW peace within myself and to consciously remember and embody oneness with all.
I was committed, diligent, and…inflexible in my practice.
A meditation practice whose intention was freedom, but who’s structure was anything but…Yes, I’m laughing right now and I hope you are too.

May I encourage you educate yourself on what is really going on outside of what the main stream media desires us to believe? Remember: low frequency emotions and thoughts are some of the most damaging agents to our immune system and health (physical, emotional and spiritual).

I made a visit to the Desert Botanical Garden over the weekend (which inspired this post). I saw a sign explaining ‘photosynthesis’. We are all aware that plants and trees feed themselves via the process of photosynthesis. Perhaps it is easy to forget how awe inspiring this is.
