Always Learning

I’m learning…
That you don’t get mad alone
That you don’t get happy alone
That you find yourself amidst others
That you figure it out that way

I’m learning…
That home is not your house, or your things, your space or your time
Home is a feeling, a peace-of-mind, a blanket of love around you

I’m learning…
That love can’t be seen in a phone call, picture or a letter
That it can’t be felt in words of affection
That it can be felt in absolutely everything
Because it’s so much larger than that
And that security is a fence you build, together and in yourself
A fence that is constantly repaired, opened and closed

I’m learning…
That you can be together and free
Amidst the stars, the only light to guide you
And it’s enough to follow the path
That you can be alone and overwhelmed
By all that is with you

I’m learning…
That you don’t have to sing to enjoy the music
But that great things are better when you do them
Even if there is just one person to see it, or no person to see..

I’m learning…
That pride enables nothing
That letting God work through you is enough
That helping others helps you
That giving everything away makes you feel free
That you sincerely and deeply win more that way
That when you give yourself away, you gain so much more

I’m learning…
That my dreams are pretty simple:
To succeed in good health
Aim for the stars
Land in someone’s arms
Create new life
Contribute to the lives around me
After all, I’m an Indigo child- teaching new ways to love, how to love
I dream of living in love, giving and taking and sharing and teaching

I’m learning…
That every pain is a lesson
That every joy is a gift
That God is with you either way
And that faith is under-estimated
