The Greatest Thing You’ll Ever Learn…

My sister sent this poem to me today. I liked it enough to want to pass it along.

God Says Yes To Me

I asked God if it was okay to be melodramatic
and she said yes
I asked her if it was okay to be short
and she said it sure is
I asked her if I could wear nail polish
or not wear nail polish
and she said honey
she calls me that sometimes
she said you can do just exactly
what you want to
Thanks God I said
And is it even okay if I don’t paragraph
my letters
Sweetcakes God said
who knows where she picked that up
what I’m telling you is
Yes Yes Yes

I did a dream and card reading for a friend a couple of nights ago after which she said she felt so good because the information was all so supportive and positive. I said YES. That is the nature of the universe, how it speaks! It always wants to tell you what will be the most healing, encouraging and supportive information – never, ever discouraging or admonishing. That is what I find in reading dreams and in reading what the oracular voices say through methods for divining their intelligences. As Carl Jung said, “The dream is always on your side.” And that, I believe, sums up what I would say about the universe; it is always on your side. It may give warnings, or information that stops you in your tracks about something, but it does so like your most loving best friend would do, believing completely in you, loving you with all of itself. That is how I read the dreams and that is how I read the cards, because that is how the universe channels itself through me in those situations. It teaches me every day.

“The greatest thing you’ll ever learn, is just to love and be loved in return.” This is a line my daughters and I sing often which we learned in the delightful movie Moulin Rouge. I think it holds the deepest, purest truth.

Yes. She says Yes.

    Yea, I mean YES. This is great. Affirmation, confimation. Getting to YES, Getting to Love.

    An interesting story. John Lennon arrived in his limo(he never learned to drive) to Yoko’s art exhibit. One of his first meetings if not the first with this new artist. He was so nervous he sat in the limo for twenty minutes. He finally summons the courage and saunters in to the show and is introduced. She walks him through the exhibit of her works. Finally they come to an odd exhibit. It’s a ladder with a telescope at the top. She tells or he gathers that it’s an interactive exhibit so he climbs the ladder. The telescope is held in position and her peers through it. It’s out of focus so he proceeds to turn the dial and bring it into focus. Clear across the room he finally sees what she’s been trying to show him. The fuzzines turns to one word, that word is YES. That was the beginning of their real relationship.

    Thanks for your post. It was great.

    John Lennon is one of my idols, I’ve read several biographies of him. Thanks for reminding me of this story, I had forgotten. YES!!

    This line is from a song, I love it, I thought of it immediately I saw the title of this blog entry. “There was a boy/A very special boy/…” The song is called “Nature Boy,” you probably already know this. Nat King Cole sang it. He has a special place in my heart, as he sang the first song I remember loving on the radio, “Too Young.” I was 3. Yes, it’s funny.

    I love the poem! It reminds me of the Ya-Yas.

  5. Tayria Ward Says:

    Ah yes, Nature Boy, right! Casey sang it on American Idol last week. He was amazing. That must be why it was in my head.

    Yes, Tayria! Yes!
