All the running in mind to get somewhere
Often makes us feel stuck in the nowhere
I have been enjoying the spaces in my mind
Between thoughts, of all kind & unkind
In arriving those spaces we get to face
Our self with all that we try to escape
Taking the time to know our own thoughts & emotions
Towards our self, others & this life
Enables us to choose with no fear
Our actions become crisp & clear
Slower we go, quicker we reach
To all that we truly beseech
We can either struggle, become impatient and keep running in our minds with how things should be, how we should be and how different we wish it all to be. Self-judgment often fuels this mind marathon.
We can take time to truly know what we are reaching for through all that we want. All can become possible if we allow the time and space. Clarity of choice comes from the slowing down in our mind.
