Learning To See

 

By Jenny Leigh Hodgins 2008

 

Learning to see beyond this moment, into eternity

Trusting inside how time is incomprehensible,

Condensing and bridging past, present and future

Feeling our bond like that, as something unchangeable

Reaching further than my own mind could ever grasp

 

Learning to know how all my own causes accumulate

Touching a place in my heart where answers arise

Looking for that great, powerful condition within us

Knowing we connect this way, from a limitless source,

A mystical river that flows as the essence of our lives

 

I’m learning to see, both you and me, shining like stars

I’m learning to know the joy in my soul, trusting our hearts

Wonderfully–I’m breaking free, Learning to see

 

Learning to look at my own heart in a way

To overcome illusions I’d painted over myself

Letting go of misguided judgments I’ve made

Tearing apart old patterns and breaking through

Distorted visions and limitations I had placed

 

Learning to see through eyes of clear wisdom

Perceiving our struggles as a beautiful drama

Depicting how profoundly amazing we are

Tapping our highest joy and strength

Like a magnificent unfolding of great artistry

 

Learning to love our pain for the value it holds

Deepening the richness felt in every stage

Sensing the larger truth that holds us in sync

Fusing reality with undefeatable confidence

Living a life of power unsurpassed

 

I’m learning to see, both you and me, shining like stars

I’m learning to know the joy in my soul, trusting our hearts

Wonderfully–I’m breaking free, Learning to see
