Wednesday, November 4

Today I caught a leaf, as it floated down from the sky.

I had to look up to spot it and keep my gaze gently upon it.  I had to be still and watch and wait.  I had to breathe gently and keep my body soft, relaxed and ready.  I had to move fluidly, gracefully to follow its path.  I had to open my palm in readiness and acceptance to allow it a place to land.

There was no “chasing” this leaf.  Or reaching for it.  Too much effort and the leaf simply goes somewhere else.

Today I am grateful for this teacher, the leaf.

Look up, be still and open your palms to the sky.  And maybe you will find a leaf or a leaf will find you.

word of the day;  surrender
