Look around. Look around with new eyes. For every wall that has fallen, a passageway now exists that did not exist before. A barrier has been removed and the open vista of life stretches out ahead.
Do not stare down at the stones that lie broken and crumbling beneath your feet. Look out. Lift your eyes and see that this fallen wall is now a portal that you can walk through.
See how the walls that you thought were bringing you stability and safety were actually blocking you from walking your path more fully, more vibrantly, out in the sunshine of life.
See how the open vista beckons you, how your heart yearns to walk free, out in the sunshine, carrying only a packet full of faith.
See the others who are out on the path, how their steps are beginning to pick up vigor as they begin to see that they can not only survive, but in fact can thrive, out in the open fields of life, free of the heavy walls that others put up around them over the centuries.
Look around. Look around with new eyes and see your life opening up around you. Step out of the rubble and be glad that your prison has crumbled and the guards are looking away, their eyes clouded with self-pity over their losses.
Look around and sense the wind of freedom that is blowing across the land. See how it stirs up the dust and blows it away. See how the light pouring in now through the fallen wall exposes the dust and cobwebs in which you have been living, the moldy old ways of thinking and seeing and being.
Step outside these crumbling walls and feel the fresh wind of promise, of newness. "Yes, yes!" it calls. "Yes!" rings out across the land. "Yes!" each bird sings.
Step out here and take a deep breath, look around and then say "Yes!" Say "Yes!" to life as it unfolds before you in wonder. This is the springing open wide. This is the opening and unfolding. This is the wonder of the becoming.
This is the moment to feel the greatness within you, to dip down into your heart of courage and pull out all of your talents, your deep abilities, your glory and beauty and wonder. Pull it all out; lift it up to the opening vista of life and say: "Yes, yes! I am ready to live, to move into my greatness, to open to all that I am and let it shine out. Yes, I am here. I am ready. I am."
