Everything is Possible

My vision, a moment in time:

I am in a room filled with light, looking out to the garden through the open window. I am awakening from my meditation. I lift my cup of tea that has been cooling as I meditate, and I look out at the beauty of nature. I soak in the joy of sunshine. I step outside and breathe the fresh air, smelling the earth and cool water.  I can hear birds and a slight breeze through the trees and leaves of the garden. I am calm, my body feels relaxed and in tune; I feel my connected self. I am alone right now, but I know someone I love is nearby, preparing for their own day.

I enjoy the Mediterranean climate. I know the ocean is nearby and can envision the quick journey to the waves. Today though, I prepare for my morning workout with a quick bite. I return to my home feeling strong, my mind bright from the physical activity. My body is fit and feels good. I feel all ten fingers and all ten toes.

After a quick rinse, I throw on light, cool clothing and head to my studio/study. The room is clean and sparing, with sheer white curtains pushed aside from the window. There are books and there is art, each piece has a story and carries significant thought. I see the work I created, pictures of experiences not yet had. Art I made myself of places we have gone, nature, and sacred spaces. The center of the desk is clear, if I need a computer I bring it to the room, there is none in residence. I step into the room looking forward to the work of the day with assurance (as opposed to anxiety). There is a small stack of journals and published books on my desk, all of my own writing.

On the wall is a framed illustration, a painting of a deep pink flower blown by wind on a natural fiber background. Alongside is a quote in black ink, written in French (I’m fluent) in my own handwriting: "Je suis là, je suis libre, je peux tout m'imaginer. Tout est possible... je n'ai qu'à lever les yeux et je redeviens le monde." A quote that guides me and grounds me. Reminding me that this day, and every day is filled with possibility, the possibility and the certainty that I create the world.
