About a month ago
I was asked to perform a task
I thought was beyond my abilities.
It’s not important the task or the people
What is important is the door that opened.
My calendar was noted
for four weeks ahead
I wasn’t ready was my inside voice
Yes, I am was my quiet voice
I’m not good enough is my inside voice.
You are everything you need said my quiet voice
I imagined myself into panic
My quiet voice sat by me in silence
I imagined my failure
My quiet voice stayed steady.
Back and forth we went through the days
As I watched the calendar pass
Walking up one road of fear
And down another to acceptance
Little by little my quiet voice guided me
through all the obstacles I threw in my path
Little by little I found guidance
Inside and outside
An energy clearing here
A profound message of support there
I listened and doubted
I listened and watched the calendar
I discovered I am not alone
Even when I’m scared.
I ask for help and answers come
I say yes and find inner guidance
Day by day
Week by week
Until I was ready
And the appointment cancelled.
And I knew it wasn’t about the appointment
It was about the journey.
I learned so much
I cleared so much
Thank you for this journey
Through my fears and doubts
Through the mountainous obstacles
I threw in my path
The illusions seem real
The fears construct metal mountains
I breathe past my fears
I’m not alone
Now I’m prepared
Now I’m ready.
A Journey by Dr. M. Coleman Harris Life is like a journey Taken on a train With a pair of travellers At each windowpane. I may sit beside you All the journey through, Or I may sit elsewhere Never knowing you. But if fate should make me To sit by your side, Let’s be pleasant travelers; It’s so short a ride.
