A Summer Day Draws Me In
discover joyful living
Summer has a distinctive voice, separate from other seasons.
I love the lazy, hazy days
of summer: The droning of locust.
The singing, twittering of the birds.
The fully leafed trees that screen the hot, summer sun. The
buzzing of bees and dragonflies.
The fragrance of honeysuckle vines.
I decide to bring myself to the essence of this
summer day and energetically be one with it.
I settle into an Adirondack
chair under an ancient shade tree - relaxed, dozing, smiling,
drone of the locust is lulling me into myself.
I hear its voice, “Keep aligned; like we are. We all
buzz together in harmony.
Don’t you see, it is we.”
My focus switches to the
birds - lots of twitter, lots of different sounds. Some voices are
loud and distinctive, some are soft, some are chirpy, and some sound
almost like music. Some birds
talk occasionally, while some do more frequently.
But, all are harmonious together. All are part of the mosaic.
No one bird is trying to
dominate over the others.
I think, “Isn’t this how humans should be?”
As I travel deeper into
myself, I feel encouraged to go past the surface.
“There is more here.

layers being removed; the path opening, beckoning me forward.
I strip back more layers.

safe, secure, and one with all.
I feel so good, so
energetically wonderful. I am
one with myself, my true self, my soul, and my spirit.
I am one with God. Why do I
think my body is me? How did
I become so dependent on my mind?
“This is me,
the true me – here inside of me.”
I relax into myself, really relax.
When did I become separated from who I am; my love, my
passion, my joy? How did I
lose my way? “Fear.

I receive: “Follow the

I choose to be the
highest idea of myself. I
choose to be my passion. Like the birds, the locust, and all of
nature, I choose to be aligned and one with all that is.
Where do I start?
“The first step is where you are right
now – be aligned with the Spirit within you.
Come here often and you will find joy – you will be joy.”
So it’s your turn.
The birds and locust ask you –
“Want to be in harmony?”
