Pathmaker

By Amba Gale

You
are an explorer,
a path maker,
a step – by – step walker.

No one
on the entire planet
can draw your map for you.

Everyone
on the entire planet
bows to internal and external demands
and does so willingly or unwillingly.

Best
to embrace those demands
in a welcoming way,
or not accept the demands at all.

If this cannot be done, we sacrifice our integrity.

Take your pick:
Victim or Author–
the choice is yours.

Awake
Alive
Conscious
People
do
not plan too much,
nor get attached to their plans.

Instead, they listen,
deeply,
and then they walk
to the beat of their own music,
the harmonies of their own song,
the rhythms of their own drum,
in a dance with other humans Being
and the elemental forces around them,
inspiring everyone whom they touch.

Trust in your essential wisdom to lead the way. The world is in flux. You will find your way. “All things must pass.” Let them go. May I be…

Presence

Dancing in the water, the bright orange sun winks at me through the branches of the pine. The ceiling falling is nothing, being present to such beauty.
