WALKING AND WAKING

by Gwydion Ap Alder

Age Group: Adult



Through this our current life our present incarnation we walk and if aware, LIVE!
For if we are awake then we are growing and learning, always seeking to find Connection.
People walking beside or around us may be helping or hindering as their various roles dictate
For this LIFE is a journey of many challenges and lessons offering us the chance of Growth
But interspersed within those challenges and lessons are things of great beauty and joy to behold
We have but to open our senses and take in what has been given us by the loving Universe

Walk slowly, breathe in the blessed crystal air, feel the breeze’s soft caress upon our faces
Scent the newly opened blossoms subtle perfume as we feel the heat of His Sun upon our skins
In the dark of night look upwards and see the vast panoply of stars strewn across the black velvet sky
Sparkling as diamonds, infinite in number and variety, then continue to watch as shooting stars fly by
Each blessed gift, each singular wonder, each second of this life has meaning and importance to share
But we have to be open, aware, and sensitive to life’s subtleties and changing patterns to savor them fully

At peril do we walk life’s pathway with head down striving, struggling, to… what? To get to it’s END?
If our goal is to walk THROUGH life hurrying blindly towards its unavoidable ending, what’s the point?
If we do not slow our pace, open our senses to the natural beauty we are surrounded by then why LIVE?

I choose this day to slow down, I choose this day to breathe into the NOW, I choose to open myself
To feel and sense and taste and touch this marvel and blessing that is this LIFE and my walk through it.
For I have choice every second of every day as to what I will see, what I will value, and what I will do

And it is what I do with that precious and sacred choice that defines for me how this LIFE is experienced
It can be drudgery and sleep walking or the banquet of sensation and ecstatic feeling it was meant to be
It is all up to me to DECIDE how this walk, this journey, will be experienced.

All up to me to LIVE it fully!
