balanced at the brink of wisdom

I am alone and I am searching, hungering for answers in my time
I am balanced at the brink of wisdom; I’m impatient to receive a sign
I move forward with my senses open; imperfection, it be my crime
In humility, I will listen
We’re all swimming to the other side…

                    We are living ‘neath the great big dipper
                    We are washed by the very same rain
                    We are swimming in this stream together
                    Some in power and some in pain
                    We can worship this ground we walk on
                    Cherishing the beings that we live beside
                    Loving spirits will live  forever
                    We’re all swimming to the other side

When we get there we’ll discover all of the gifts we’ve been given to share
Have been with us since life’s beginning and we never noticed they were there
We can balance at the brink of wisdom, never recognizing that we’ve arrived
Loving spirits will live together
We’re all swimming to the other side…

(Pat Humphries, Swimming to the Other Side)
