William Ayot reminds me how much goes unexplored in my life. In the busyness and noise of my living, I do not hear what is calling me to be explored.
When I am mindful to the universe and my self, I hear whispers that come in gentle breezes and on the sun’s rays. Being present to the universe and my self, helps me explore stars that seemed beyond my reach and climb peaks I believed unscalable.
The universe is a great ocean calling to me and patiently waiting my response.
What do you want to do in this world?
What is your star, your far distant peak?
What dream lies unexplored within you
like a vast uncharted southern ocean:
daunting, demanding, compelling in the night,
yet receding in the bright and busy light of day?
What discoveries invite you to the water?
What deck awaits your first excited step?
What ship, what clipper, what brave caravel?
what crowded ferry crosses back and forth,
from dream to waking, dream to waking,
every morning of your undiscovered life?
