Look up, look up...

When you look up, what is it that you see?

I see the clouds being lightly blown by the same air we breathe deep into our bellies. I see they are full of the water that will will help our plants to grow and will quench the thirsts of our family and friends. I see constant change - just like our emotions they are never the same, coming and going, dark and light, thick and thin. Changing, changing. And just like the weather, this too shall pass, and all will always be well again.

At night when I look up to the stars I can see just how tiny we are. A little speck in this gigantic universe.
I wonder what our purpose is, and if we are doing a good job at it. I feel the cool air on my skin and listen to the insects humming and I thank the universe that at that moment, my world is peaceful and I am safe. I think of how my soul could have been born into any body, and I wonder where it will go next, what I will have to face, and my heart goes out to those who may already be facing it.

When I look out to the sea I see the surface of something so deep I can't even comprehend. A strange world full of creatures that are so different from us. A delicate eco-system that has been used and abused with little understanding of the consequences. A place we must protect as we need it more than it needs us.

I see that everything is connected. Appreciate what you have, but know everything will come and go. Help who you can when you can.  What you give will come back to you.

When you look up, what do you see?
