There are many people not sure what to do
They act hastily react and sit and stew
Never get to bottom never get clear
Never take the time or thought to get to what is dear
It takes a pointed focus and a lot of strength
To hang in indecision when your jaw is clenched
When you have misgivings and uncertainty
It’s hard to choose a course that will set you free
To get to real freedom best to avoid remorse
Envision all the consequence before choosing a course
Most of the planet’s sadness pain that makes you scream
Stems from untempered action not attached to any dream
Put yourself in the future play out every scene
Embody all the results of living in that dream
Get into all the feelings all the mental sets
Understand the place you’ll be when you take those steps
Listen to the voices that speak from deep inside
They will tell your own truth beyond foolish pride
It’s not about your victory or your common sense
It’s honoring your inner world beyond all pretense
Move slowly in your cauldron let heat and passion cool
You do not want to reflect and say I was such a fool
Be open to your own depths let them bubble up
Take the time for your true voice to fill your wisdom cup
How good are you at imagining what will follow from a particular action?
Do you take thoughtful time to listen to yourself and others before taking action?
What have you learned from going through that process?
How has it impacted your way of acting in the world?
