As we move through life seeking our center
At first we’re clear it resides in our mentor
Initially parents fill our need
Then it’s our teachers who give us our creed
As we keep learning it shifts place to place
Mostly it’s something outside our space
Religious affiliation and career goals
From nuclear family to friends spouses and roles
A political cause or some kind of dream
Something that’s simple something extreme
Please do take notice that all these things
Each is external to you as a human being
As you keep going and moving about
You keep on learning without a doubt
You come to discover your sacred source
Lives deep inside you can’t get a divorce
Don’t be afraid to follow your heart
There lies the spark from which comes your art
One day you’ll stop seeking external validation
Then you can accept you’re your own inspiration
What provides your ground?
Is it external or internal? Both?
Have you made deliberate choices about your center?
When was the last time?
What did you discover?
How did it inform you about your life?
Did you change anything? Why? Why not?
