Mental or loved beyond measure

MENTAL OR LOVED BEYOND MEASURE!
I get out of bed, the time is just right.
The clothes I want for my day have percolated to the top of each drawer.
The food I eat is perfect but only because I have already done the work.
I think of a friend, they phone me 20 minutes later.
The timing is spot on and we exchange gifts of love.
I notice things, patterns, colours, go/stop, do service, messages from God
I turn on the radio and a song I have not heard for years remind me that I have been in and out of tune many times before.
The difference now is that I know how it works.
Another song written by a beautiful crystal child tells me they are waking us and all along we thought we had to wake them.
Driving down the road a truck logo says something profound.
I smile or laugh a little laugh and say thank you for such perfection.
I wonder at the order, the synchronicity, the utter simplicity.
My heart is so touched that life loves me so much
Emotions flow, fleeting yet authentic.
Like Rumi’s guest house poem I welcome them all.
Has it always be like this for me? No.
I thought I was mad, bad and so, so sad.
I frightened my loved ones and made them sad too.
The doctors said you're sick, here take all these little pills.
We will cure you of all your little ills.
I wobbled and tipped over time and time again.
But I am very brave, more than anyone could know.
I made a vow of courage, compassion and joy.
My heart is true and my truth is pure -
My love is vast, for me and you.
It spans the world and back again
Sealed with a kiss.
