Back, behind, the past...What’s happened is done... The past is gone.
But is it?
We base our lives, our decisions on what has happened I the past.
The outcome of our choices helps to guide our choices,
Giving us direction and purpose to where we go and how we get there.
We are not simple creatures,
We are complex systems comprised of all our experiences.
What we were is part of who we are.
But does it need to rule us,
Does it set our path in stone?
I think NOT.
We choose to stay in our lives
We choose to be safe surrounding ourselves with what we know
Is that the best way?
The only way?
Are there any other possibilities?
Of course there are!
Stand up, Look around;
Step back, forward or sideways,
See the world around you!
One thing is clear, certain and definite, without you, there can be no us or we.
You, yourself must be a force of your own,
Empowered in order to successfully merge your path with another.
Your journey, ever changing, ever growing, morphing needs to be clear.
When it gets all muddled by another it becomes impossible to see,
impossible to follow.
What if you don’t want to follow?
What if you just want to journey, touch those around you
Travel only as far as it suits you
What if you have no purpose? No direction? Where do you go? How do you find your way?
How do you... How do you exist?
What do you do? Where do you go?
When you are dark, lost and alone surrounded by nothing, existing in time and out of time,
Try to rebuild, try to hold yourself together, try to love!
Be at peace.
Stop the hate.
Embrace the madness.
There is no turning back.
Do not try to find a purpose.
Let life happen.
You are what you eat.
You reap what you sow
Blah, blah, blah,
You have heard it all before.
You will hear it all again.
Let yourself go.
Break the chains that bind you.
Get up, stand up,
Who are you?
Where are you?
How did you get here?
When did you get here?
Where are you going?
Where have you been?
It is nice to meet you.
It is nice to know you.
Who are you again?
Oh that’s right, I remember you,
We met along long time ago.
I am me, you are me, together we are one.
We do not need another to make us something or someone.
We, you, me, I am the only thing stopping my progress.
I am the only one who can dictate where I am going and how I am getting there.
Where is there?
No there, maybe someplace we have already been,
Maybe someplace new,
We will never know, since no place will ever be the same when we visit again.
Once we leave, we learn, we grow, we experience life, and when we return it is gone,
That place we once knew, we will never find.
No need to be sad we are not done.
We are more or we are less, we are morphed and so too is what we see and how we see it.
Purpose, drive, definitions, balance, motion all at once, nothing
Your choice, My choice, Our choice.
Listen to the voices.
See the shadows.
Look into and through the flames;
Know your story,
Write your story.
Back to the Basics…
