I had my monthly Healing Journey meet tonight, and was given a copy of a poem that I thought was rather fab, so thought I'd share it. Here it is: Oh, and at the bottom is a lovely Hokusai picture.
Hokusai Says by Roger Keyes,
He says pay attention, notice.
He says keep looking, stay curious.
He says there is no end to seeing.
He says keep changing,
you just get more who you really are.
He says get stuck, accept it, repeat yourself
as long as it’s interesting.
He says keep praying.
He says every one of us is a child,
every one of us has a body.
He says every one of us is frightened.
He says every one of us has to find a way to live with fear.
shells, buildings, people, fish, mountains, trees.
Wood is alive.
Water is alive.
Everything has its own life.
Everything lives inside us.
He says live with the world inside you.
It doesn’t matter if you saw wood, or catch fish.
It doesn’t matter if you sit at home
and stare at the ants on your verandah or the shadows of the trees
and grasses in your garden.
It matters that you feel.
It matters that you notice.
It matters that life lives through you.
Joy is life living through you.
Satisfaction and strength
are life living through you.
Peace is life living through you.
Don’t be afraid.
Look, feel, let life take you by the hand.
Let life live through you.
