You’re Not a Cookie


Once my mom said to me
You’re not a cookie.
You’re not going to come
out of the oven all done.
We had been talking about life,
and how impatient I was to
get there, wherever “there” was.
I read tonight about a spiritual teacher
who shocked the audience saying
You will never get it all together.
I guess that this teacher also realized
that we aren’t cookies.

  1. I had a similar awareness with a teacher of mine, realizing she was still a work in progress- it was liberating to realize there is no “finished” – or “cooked” to get to. always baking 🙂
