I want refuge from my own thoughts. I want to have something to hold on to and boldly proclaim "This is where I take my stand. I will remain here and not be moved!" I do not want to consider ideas that will challenge my beliefs of God or Love or Possibility. I envisioned a giant Redwood growing beside a fast moving river. The tree is rooted deep in the ground. I held to the tree. with everything in my being I embraced the tree and when any thoughts tried to approach me they were washed away in the river and all I thought of was the tree. I became one with the tree. I wept with fear, with knowledge that the tree will not last forever, here. For now this is all I have , For now, this is my refuge. I am sure there is more and I will return to my refuge to my meditation and hopefully I will find some answers.
With Love and Light,
