I have built city, state and national walls and boarders
A result of walls and boarders built by my mind
Relics and tools handed down from generation to generation
Time erodes its reasons so I create my own
Powerful tool or powerful master?
We have freewill do we? Who is the one thinking our thoughts? Is freewill a continued state of giving unintentional attention to the thoughts that arise and then getting lost in them? Is freewill impulsively acting out however we feel? Wait, did I choose to feel this way at this moment and think this thought? Is freewill blaming others for making us feel this way? How can they make me feel this way if I am free?
Today is the day of change I declare! I act on my own accord and with complete autonomy. Wait, why did I just do that, again?
Oh no, why me? You got to be kidding me! Come on, not now! Oh great, just what I needed!
When was it supposed to happen, yesterday?
“I never saw a wild thing sorry for itself.
A small bird will drop frozen dead from a bough
without ever having felt sorry for itself” – D. H. Lawrence
I know this person who is always in a rush at work, day in and day out. I often wonder where she is really trying to go? I wonder what it is that she is really trying to achieve and if she’s ever really found it? I wonder if she even knows?
I see this person in traffic racing around, day in and day out I see someone else. I often wonder where they are really trying to go? Do they know that it will literally only save them 5 minutes at most, and probably only less than a minute! I wonder if they even know?
I watch this person standing in the grocery line looking angry and impatient. I often wonder where they are really trying to go? Speeding around the parking lot looking for the best spot; look at all this time they saved! I wonder what they will do with it? I wonder if they even know?
Where is there to go?
