On My Way to Oz

20150808_095334

As I walk along this road

I am reminded of Dorothy

and how she met her perfect companions

on her way to the

Wonderful Land of Oz

.

I think of the people

and the circumstances that appear in my life

and there is a comfort in knowing

that they all arrive exactly when they are supposed to

and they all carry a message that is

unwrapped as a gift

unraveled as a mystery

unknown as an entity

.

I walk and I gather the knowing

the things that determine the steps that I take

I walk and I pick up things and inspect them

to see if they will be useful along the way

I walk and I strategically lighten my load

by placing things that are no longer needed

no longer necessary parts of my journey

just so

on the side of the road

with the hope

that the person who needs the trinket most

will see it sparkle and pick it up

.

I meet strangers I have known my whole life

I meet blood relatives I don’t know at all

I commune with animals in nature

and they all reveal little parts of me

like a kaleidoscope that is turned

and the pieces meet and marry

and reveal a beautiful whole

.

Yes, this walk that seems haphazard

is choreographed perfectly

I meet my companions just so

and I experience events in Divine timing

On my way to

The Wonderful Land of Oz!

    1. Ah! Brad! Yes…kick my shoes. I coveted the role of Dorothy in a grade school play…but ended up landing the role of the Wicked Witch of the West!! I loved her dearly and had a blast playing her…but I can’t help wonder if I could land the role of Dorothy now! πŸ˜‰ (hehe)
      Love to you, Brad! ❀

      1. I will always be grateful for these prayers! Thank you! I will also say that I am indeed very gladdened by it. I have made the most amazing connections all because of it. I think our family has benefitted in our bigger tree-realization. It’s amazing… I feel strengthened, Lorrie. I feel loved by arms bigger/larger than human. ❀ Also, learning how to hold lightly…again and again. πŸ˜€

  3. Thanks for reminding, Lorrie, so clearly, of the sublime choreography at work all around us. Your courage in trusting the mystery of both the new and the familiar is inspiring… Companionship and grace are the hallmarks of an open heart I think… We help each other to receive them…

    Blessings and lovely travels!

  4. Lovely Lorrie. You know, I’ve been hearing a lot lately about the importance of relationships. That there is no real joy apart from relationships.
    I love the part where you wrote ‘perfectly choreographed’. Wonderful imagery there, my friend.
    Hope you’re having a wonderful week.

    1. Thanks, Sue!! It was yesterday…and I had a wonderful day. I had lunch with a friend who was diagnosed with bladder cancer just about a year ago. She has had some incredible year since then, and her spirit and zest for life was so empowering!! Made me assess all the blessings in my life and I am BLESSITUDE!!! I wish you all good things…and thank you again! ❀
