Sunrise, Tide Pools, and Shore Birds

Good Day, God!

There is nothing like rising in the dark (4:20 a.m.), driving to Starbucks to pick up decaf lattes, and then meeting a friend for her Birthday and a Sunrise Walk.

Sunrise is such a sacred time, God. Especially when one Awaits It by the ocean’s edge — away from the traffic and lights and busy-ness of the city.

Well, yes God, any time can be experienced as sacred. That is true. I suppose, come to think of it that ALL time is sacred. It just requires being in it — in the moment.

Still, Dawn is special. Observing the imperceptible lightening . . . observing what is — become visible to my eyes. That helps me enter into the Now. Like this tide pool welcoming each incoming wave with ripples gently flowing to the edge of the lava — a brief stillness — then another set of expanding ripples — again and again.

I stood there, God, feeling a bit like the Tide Pool. I, too, am mostly enclosed. New Waters, New Thoughts do flow in — rippling across my consciousness. Ah, but the Lava of my Limited Mindset remains in place. Unmoving. Or maybe that isn’t so much my Mindset as my Human Limitations?

I feel like a shore bird, God. It is not my nature sail for distant shores. Or, like Abraham, to leave home and set out on a lifelong journey without knowing where he was going.

You say Life is a Journey into the Unknown. And You might even yet have changes awaiting me.

Well, then. Yes, to You, God! Yes to Your Will being done!
