What I've learned

Expectations blemish the outcome. This is the result of having a fixed idea of how something is to come about. When you have no expectations, you are open to whatever happens or is given. Therefore you are setting yourself in a perfect position to be pleasantly surprised. When you are vulnerable, you are opening yourself up to new ways of thinking and perceiving. You are being genuinely receptive and aligning with what is for your highest good and the good of others.

I can see you but do you really see me?
How can you know what it’s like to be?
Surface impressions can be so very deceiving
if the onlooker is by a narrow mind perceiving.

If you are…
a fairly incandescent will-o-the-wisp
fold your wings and float awhile
in the stream
after all,
light is beautiful when reflected off water
If you get caught…
stealing secret glances
tell them it’s only because
you want to see the world
through their shining eyes
maybe the way they are now
maybe the way they perceived
when everything was terrifying and new
in magical ways that even they’ve forgotten
