We all have
bits and pieces of our lives, or current problems, that don't make
sense. We fume and stress over them and everything gets more
tangled. Then one day we switch off for a short while and answers
quite suddenly appear as if from nowhere and everything is peaceful.
However, it is often into these quiet, blissful moments that
something drastic happens; the inner beast inside us that threatens
to assault reason and create sudden overt displays of emotions such
as jealousy, anger or revenge wakes us up to the fact that we still
have a long way to go. To do this or that, which is the correct
action? Sometimes the correct choice cannot be made with adequate
information from either deep within oneself or from another person.
I am learning to believe there is action in non-action. More aptly
put I believe that it is sometimes wiser to do nothing than to
simply do something for the sake of action I am constantly presented
with choices and have learned that I need be patient in any
situation before deciding on what to do, what choice to make, what
course to take (said the turtle). To follow the dictates of my heart
and soul rather than allow the crowd to sway me, family influence me
or, environmental conditioning to deter me; to be true to myself
against the odds brings freedom and independence. My freedom comes
from within and it manifests itself as the peace I find deep inside
during difficult times.
