Daily Meditation for June 22, 2020

The wind kissed the earth and then blew away.
The sun smiled on the trees and hills and then rolled west.
The birds sang and cheered the breeze. The scent of blossoms teased our noses.
Then new growth astonished us all. Rain moved over the land and washed it all clean.
A changing horizon brings a new vista and there is room for new ideas. Fresh insights come with changing times. The failure of what was and what no longer works forces us to think again! We give new ideas life by acting upon those ideas. The great and inventive artist, Pablo Picasso, phrased it this way: “Action is the foundational key to all success.” So, we need to dare in thinking new ideas, then put them into action. This action needs to be tried again and again until we get to success for the tomorrow which cannot be halted.
