I Celebrate Myself…

I Celebrate Myself

1 Comment

Hmm, I love that line, the beginning of Walt Whitman’s poem Songs of Myself, one of the most introspective poems ever written. Well today, I celebrate myself and the people that are in my life, loving me–my friends and my family. I just did a quiet smile, the type that doesn’t show up on your face but comes straight from the heart. Although I am sleep deprived (marinating chicken late last night and then  my parents singing me happy birthday at 6:43 in the morning over the phone, followed by my sister at 7:30 and then a friend from Jamaica at 8:40!) I am thankful.

So, on my birthday today, I celebrate myself and all the light and love that is in my life at this moment. I celebrate the possiblities of the future, the lessons of the past and I celebrate the gift of this moment.

I Have Learned So much from God That I can no longer Call Myself A Christian, a Hindu, a Muslim, A Buddhist, a Jew. The Truth has shared so much of Itself With me That I can no longer call myself A man, a woman, an angel, Or even pure Soul. Love has Befriended Hafiz so completely It has turned to ash And freed Me Of every concept and image My mind has ever known. ~ Hafiz ~
