Never a shortage
Moment by moment choices are made.
Will I ever know the
The full implications
Before I act (or don’t)
Or is it only in hindsight that I will ever become aware?
Every day I make them
Some I consider deeply
Some I worry about,
I am concerned at the potential outcomes of those choices,
Concerned at the potentials I feel I cannot control.
Other choices I make instantly
Will I ever understand the
The absolute Truth of my choice?
A choice made on a diamond point*
Can change ones life forever,
In ways never considered…
Or away from love, into further
Pain & suffering.
Will I ever know the full extent of every choice
Before I make it?
Or will I always be looking back in hindsight?
The choices I didn’t make often feel heavier than those I made
The doing taught me more than thinking ever has.
When the book of truth is opened and I stand before my maker,
Maybe then I will understand.
I would like to know before that.
To understand now
To see through God’s goggles**
The truth of my
The truth of my
Lack of desire to love
Make a choice
Watch it ripple
Watch it grow, enlarge, excite
Watch it shrivel, shrink, diminish
Seek, act, observe, learn
Make the choice.
As I stand on the diamond point,
I know it will change the course of my life in more ways than I yet understand.
That is the power of each choice.
