How can we continue to believe
that there is security
in what is stale,
in what we’ve already harvested,
in what we’ve already celebrated?
Many times in this life,
we hear the not so faint calling
to build our new nest,
and we turn away from the calling,
planting our heals
and our hearts
in the already departed vitality
of what has passed.
We can become so complicit,
so blind and enslaved by our routines,
so much so that we literally wish and will
that things remain the same.
We sentence ourselves and those we share life with
to a tragic conformity of sameness,
an entropic dullness and deadness,
an antithesis of vitality,
fearing what inevitably is
but dynamic change,
changing and mutating
and finding new pathways to open us
to a deeper, more profound expression.
Release yourself into the maelstrom of infinite possibilities.
Encourage yourself towards these new callings,
and be changed
by finding your friendship with adaptability
and the courage and ease to raft
the invisible and unknowable currents of life.
