The Waves of the Sky

The sky is a beautiful shade of deep blue.

The puffy white clouds moving at a meditative pace, changing shapes as they roll overhead.

The waves of the sky.

Gazing at this wondrous expanse, with a seemingly empty mind, I’m quickly brought back to reality.

The pain; that gut wrenching emotional pain, the reality of my symptoms.

They return because just as I was mesmerized by the sky, I was triggered by a long ago memory.

A memory when I looked to the sky for help, for escape.

Today, I am sitting with the unpleasantness of the truth, while also deciding that although it may feel unpleasant, I do not have to suffer.

I’m resting in the power and knowledge of my truth.

I take a deep breath knowing that I don’t have to give myself permission to enjoy the perfect moments. I can just allow it to happen.

I can surf the waves of the sky, just as I can surf the waves of emotion, the waves of life.

The sky is indeed beautiful today, as beautiful as awareness and hope.

  2. This is something I have to comment on. I used to have a compulsion to chase down breezes in the wind outside…ok, I HAVE a compulsion. To this day I still don’t know why, but this post made me just feel one. Precious!
