I Found You

Everyone’s personal journey is unique and sacred.  Our personal journey of finding out who we really are and how we are connected to our divinity may go through many twists and turns in life.  We may knock on many doors and not find our answer(s).  Sometimes, in the midst of our search, we may get discouraged or get frustrated by our slow progress.  Sometimes we find our answers in unexpected places.
One major factor in my journey has been my persistence to find answers to my questions.  I believe when we put our focus and intention on our heart’s desires, the Universe will provide us support through many means.
In the context of Tending to Your Garden Within, we need to remember to focus on the outcome of having flourishing flowers, trees and fruits in our garden within.  It is important that we are persistent in our gardening effort and use our new learned knowledge in creating a more thriving garden within.
The poem below describes my experience of searching, looking and finding my answers.
I Found You
I looked for you everywhere.
I looked for you in the scriptures and books.
I looked for you by performing rituals.
I looked for you in the buildings.
I looked for you in the ground.
I looked for you in my parents.
I looked for you in my mate.
I could not find you.
Where is this illusive being?
It seemed that everyone knew of you, but me.
I gave up looking for you, after so long.
I, then found, you.
I found you in the sky’s night, by your winking at me.
I found you in the flower, by your smell.
I found you in the butterfly, by your dance.
I found you in people, by messages you sent me through them.
I found you in my joy and sorrow.
I found you in my laughter.
I found you in me.

    Oliveira: O “candidato reformista”, como dizem os pvitos dos telejornais. Apesar de ne3o mencionarem as reformas que ele pretende efectuar. c9 reformista sim, mas por oposie7e3o ao outro. c9 evidente que o nosso reformista ne3o vai passar a utilizar as pe1ginas do Core3o para limpar o cu, ne3o vai importar, para je1, carne de porco em grandes quantidades, beber tinto ate9 cair prf3 lado e orgias todas as sextas-feiras na grande mesquita de Teere3o… (isso sou eu que quero – e mais alguns persas – mas infelizmente ne3o somos a maioria).Mas e9 evidente que os Mullahs este3o divididos e que ne3o se trata apenas de uma luta de personalidades. Os Ayatolas em Qom je1 ne3o sabem o que he3o-de fazer e0 vida, e Ale1 moita carrasco, nem pia o cabre3o…
