Fly, bird, fly

2013 is here, sparkling with new possibilities and probabilities.  So wide the sky, so bright the sunshine.  Fly, bird, fly!

You, yes, you – I’m thinking of you, dear fellow human being.  Fly!

“Fly where?”  Over valleys of promise, across lakes of kindness, into landscapes of plenty.  Fly, bird, fly!

“How can I fly?”  How?  Get comfortable in your nest.  Be easy with yourself.  Then leave the nest to find a branch where you can spread the wings of your imagination.  Plunge yourself into the air and fly.

“Fly?  Just like that?”  I know it takes courage to plunge yourself into the air.  You need trust to let go of the solid branch.  Do it nevertheless.  If you don’t venture out now – when will you ever do it?  The time is now.

On the wings of your imagination drift to the land of granted wishes and hopes fulfilled.  Find friends in the beings you encounter – people, animals, trees, clouds, lakes, angels.  Sing along  in your heart with the voices you hear – music, birdsong, rustling of leaves, splashing of rain.

Open your heart to all that’s new and relish it.  Develop a taste for the unknown.  It is your friend.  It will be with you for a long time.

I know it takes courage to plunge yourself into the air.  You need trust to let go of the solid branch.  Do it nevertheless.  If you don’t venture out now – when will you ever do it?  The time is now.   

 Fly, bird, fly!
