Crown to toe you are a child of the wild, made of stardust
and saltwater, mud and thin air, fire and ferocity.
The yearning to rejoin your native element tastes like the rush of spring water
and feels like tethering your very soul to the wind.
Make your way to the forest floor. The first filtered light on your skin perfumes
the air with warming amber resin. You have an audience with truth now.
You are awake.
Your map is the way of breath moving blood, your soundtrack is birdsong.
Beads of sweat are a baptism in this high temple.
Soon you will see your summit for the first time. Remind yourself that in this
moment, as in all of life, what appears to be an insurmountable peak
is soon to be your vantage point.
This is the time to let go of fear and embrace the clarion call of your heart.
Your path has become a single track. Straight and narrow, fueled by focus,
until your momentum is a river with a current so strong it cannot be stopped.
There is no other day than this one. Give yourself to it,
and it will give you everything in return.
