This Osprey was soaring over the Barnstable High School football field yesterday, looking down at the sea of red and white gowns and the celebration going on below. As I sat on my chair on the football field, listening to the commencement speeches by the valedictorian, the superintendent and various other individuals, this rather large fisherman with wings flew up to a light, attached to a telephone pole, and ate his lunch during the two hour event. After he was through, he simply flew directly over the crowd, right above my head, and headed off due South, realizing that his education was complete and perfect. But, to the young men and women who face such a daunting task of not listening to the illusions of fear that are thrown about so irresponsibly by our “leaders”, President Obama excluded, my prayer for them is simply this–illegitimi non-carborundum. Latin for, “don’t let the bastards get you down.” Do not allow someone else’s egoic reaction to this world, dictate your perfection and wholeness. For that is all it is, a choice really, between Love and fear. Fear being an illusion that SEEMS to be real, but I assure you it is not. Does the Osprey fear? The Osprey just IS. Fear does not even enter it’s state of being. That is what I wish for the class of 2009, to find that bliss that is yours by birthright and nurture it, allow it to grow, and give it away freely. For by knowing that giving and receiving are one and the same, just as God and Love are one, then so then are you. For you, the Osprey, me and all of your brothers on this earth come from the one and only source there IS. Fly! Peace M
