The Path: Continuing Into 2014

January 1 2014 Parkway 006

Follow the path of Light

Always finding the next spot to plant your foot

Reflecting the One light of All.

When the path ahead is lost in shadows,

Trust that it will reveal itself

Step by step.

The light inside, one with the beacon

Drawing us ever onward.

Living the journey

Step by breath by step-

Destination just past the next horizon-

Destination already within;

The Light

  1. What a lovely verse to start a new year with!

    What jumped out at me are these lines.

    “The light inside, one with the beacon
    Drawing us ever onward.”

    But as we go through life with its myriad learning, inhibitions and challenges, we start believing in our acquired beliefs and distance ourselves from that light within. We even forget about its existence! So what is that practice we need to do to hold awareness of that beacon shining bright?


    • Happy New Year, Shakti. Thank you for visiting Forest Garden and for reading my poem. Your question is a profound one, and has been the question which brings many back to a more conscious journey. Paths are many, source is one. Cutting edge physics has documented the truth mystics have always tried to relate: Everything in the universe, including our selves, is fashioned from one, intelligent, energetic fabric. You’ll find more in recent books by Greg Braden, Lynn McTaggart, and David Wilcox. A morning affirmation I found early on and have practiced for years: “You who are the source of all power, whose rays illuminate the entire Earth, illuminate this heart also, that it too, may do your work.” Although it is dualistic, it is a helpful way to begin each day. Best wishes WG
