Who can’t remember the song I Can See Clearly Now?  Written by Johnny Nash in 1972. Recorded by many times including Jimmy Cliff in 1993.

As we continue exploring being clear or getting clarity this song seems to speak to our day challenges.  Part of being clear is knowing what and where the obstacles are.

At Catspaw we believe in the power of yoga and meditation to help get the “dark clouds” out of the way so we can see clearly. I would also encourage you to revisit this song and maybe play it when you come to your yoga mat or cushion. Just reading the lyrics will give you pause to move toward clearness even if it is just for a moment.

 

I can see clearly now, the rain is gone,
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It’s gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-Shiny day.
I think I can make it now, the pain is gone
All of the bad feelings have disappeared
Here is the rainbow I’ve been praying’ for
It’s gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-Shiny day.
Look all around, there’s nothing’ but blue skies
Look straight ahead, nothing’ but blue skiesI can see clearly now, the rain is gone,
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It’s gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-Shiny day.
Johnny Nash 1972
