Downstream Thoughts

Written by Debbie Kesley

Bobbing on a float of vivid images toward a destination
of all that feels good.
I release my wandering thoughts downstream.
The life flow of all Universal forces
lap gentle and soothing undercurrents to
guide and sustain me on my natural way.

Surges of energy present moments when
urges to grab and cling to past strong holds in my
memory still tempts me upstream to the familiar.
Aware of a powerful eruption of contrast between
my common emotional shores and the desire in which I
was born to flow and choose to venture.

Oars of direction are anchored between my ears with each
and every thought I give my attention to.
Familiar calls to join the popular and hypnotic communal
bonfire of the crowd demand my participation; however,
I surrender to the unknown bend around the corner where
Spirit calls my soul downstream to my place of joy and peace.

With a deep sigh and trusting heart,
I embrace the direction of the natural flow of my life.
Releasing the death grip to dying branches along the way
that no longer supports this Guided journey towards
all that is uniquely Me by
focusing my thoughts downstream.

    I embrace the direction of the natural flow of my life." Took me nearly 5 decades to get to this place in my life - sure can be an interesting journey, eh?
