Turn toward the light

Look at that flower,
so beautiful and bright.
It naturally turns
to the sun's shining light.
It doesn't work hard
to get what it needs;
It just accepts all
the radiant sun feeds.

I once felt so needy,
so void of the light:
How could I find
inspiration just right?
I looked at that flower
not working so hard,
and I just let go
and said,
"Leave it to God!"

Then just what was needed
came to my sight.
My thought was infused
with Truth and delight.
I knew I was whole,
complete, and fulfilled.
The Christ had appeared;
the illusion was stilled.
