Awaiting Enlightenment

In the still hush of the night; when all you hear is a plane overhead, you sit and think...and wait.
Your mind races like an anxious new father en route to the hospital to capture the birth of his first son on tape.
You can't find answers and your body harbors nervous energy...working energy...creative energy.
Anywhere but here,
   any thoughts but these,
      any choices but your own...

You've prayed, meditated, focused and re-focused your energy, but nothing seems to work.
No answers are arriving at the crossroad of your heart and your you wait.
You wait for a sign, a symbol; a small, but firm, faint voice inside that will clue you into your next steps.
All the what ifs,
  all the could it be's,
    all the I don't knows...

You sit, you think, you sip, you watch, you munch, you talk, you write....and you wait for enlightenment.
You wait for a divine directive that is already within...that you're afraid to act upon.
You wait for new knowledge.
It's inside,
  deep within you know,
     there's nothing new under the sun...
        except the way the answers were crafted in your heart to fit your individual situation.

Enlightenment has come; it's been there all along.  You heard, but ignored it.  You felt, but quelled it.
Know it, feel it, own it, love it.  Ignore the fear. Quiet the doubt.  Be who you were meant to be - wonderfully and fearfully made.

It's beautiful to be you...simply beautiful.
