Choose Wisely


Mastery takes time,
so does a masterpiece,
so don’t fix your eyes on the fantasy of completion–

instead enjoy every small step you take
in the direction back home to your true nature.

Your creative self beckons,
says, “It has been far too long.”
When you hear its voice,
for God’s sake don’t make it wait!

This inspiration is a divine gift.
Accept it graciously,
and remember who you are.

The tools are in your hands.
If they are not in your hands,
then they are right over there on that shelf.
If they aren’t on the shelf,
they are somewhere close by,
with a neighbor, a friend, a fellow traveler–
so never use the excuse
that you lack the tools to accomplish something;

the tools are all around you,
begging, longing for your touch.

Now, what are you going to make
of this one precious human life that is yours?

Choose wisely.
One path leads to bliss,
and the other to bliss.

Now, what do you choose?

I choose bliss!

    • Did you ever read The Journey is the Destination? It’s the work of photojournalist Dan Eldon, compiled by his mother and sister after his death. It’s a wonderful book on many levels. So much to look at…so much color and heart and soul. And the whole book is a reminder that the point isn’t getting there, wherever “there” is–it’s being here now, wherever that may be.
