I rest. I lay still. And through my bedroom window – I see.
My body is exhausted, but my mind has been liberated.
What chains and shackles bind us to the physical dimensions of what we see and what we hear?
What is it that releases us from the constrains of our body – to enable us to soar above, to see above, to hear above?
I exhale and am at peace – the peace of what is now. Not what is tomorrow – tomorrow is anew and I am not ready for it.
Look, look, look! What do I really see? To see beyond the lens is to live. It is the moment when mind, soul, imagination meld and form a new reality: life. I am lifted. I am numb with delight and content with the blue – blue of the sky I see just beyond the curtain which frames my view. I can see. I can almost feel the sky. I am numb with the delight of calm, peace, serenity.
A new day – now. It is here and present. If tomorrow never came I would still have today – this moment – this sight – this light.
A breath. A wisp. A gift. No promises… not today. I don’t need them.
Look, look, look! My eyes are opened – there is no pain through which I need to squint to see. There is no war raging on inside of me. There are no constraints – I look freely.
My body exhausted, my mind liberated. Today. Another breath to cleanse my view – and once again, I see.
