We stop, we go, we stand, we flow – we try our very best to know what life will have in store. But always more is what we want. More more more MORE! We whisper it, we scream it. We sing it and we dream it. What is this “more” that’s so elusive? Is it conducive to living in the NOW? NO. Otherwise we have nothing to show but unfulfilled wishes on stars, and scars of failed attempts to BE, like we can’t see what’s right in front of us. We’d have to be hit by a bus to even trust that we could see what’s there or we miss it, dismiss it, kiss it GOOD BYE before we even get to know it. We blow it. And that’s it. We just sit there with our hands folded, feeling scolded, but hold it! – we fight ourselves, we get in our own way, and then say hey! – like someone cheated us, so blind to the situation, the nation, all creation. And it’s our loss. A coin toss: to live or not to live…to give or take…be real or fake…to stop or go. And you know – sometimes you HAVE to stop and look around, and FEEL, be genuine and real, before you CAN go. Or the “going” will just be going through the motions instead of actively being you, staying true, and breathing in this thing called LIFE.
