Comes the dawn …
And with it new surprises.
What will happen today
As the sun rises?

You know not the answer
For yours is to wait
And watch it unfold
As you discover your fate.

But are you a puppet
Whose arms move on strings?
Acting only when forced,
Knowing not what life brings?

Or do you create
What unfolds in each hour?
Have you any idea
Just how vast is your power?

Each cell in your body
Is aware of its role.
All work thus together
To enliven the whole.

But just as your cells
And your organs – your heart
Make up the whole body,
You, too, are a part.

Each system, each human
Is part of something quite large.
Each one individual
Of his self is in charge.

But working together
You form something much greater.
A cell in the body
Of the One Great Creator.

What happens to one
Does affect the whole group.
It comes back to affect you
For you’re part of a loop.

So while independent
Your actions may seem,
Your role is quite vital
In the Big Cosmic Dream.

Take each action with care
For important you are.
In the vast sky of creation
You’re one twinkling star.

Note from Suzanne: I get a daily spiritual thought by email each day. I never open it until after I’ve meditated. Just after posting this poem, I opened my daily email, and here is what it says today: “Your whole body is God – your whole system is God. There is nothing in this world which is not God.” Wow.
