I listened to my heart Every day As it shares from within And I write them out as words Sometimes as verses At times it’s measured In moderation. Its a zen moment For there is clarity In just a few words shared.
Then there are times They flow like a river A torrent in a current Patterning itself In its own making Words come through me As if it needs to be spoken Sharing the sensitivity Of the moments at hand. I listen simply with rapt attention. For in the slightest flutter In every movement in the moments Or the depth of silence. There is always something more.
Power of Water Gentle yet forceful Soft yet unstoppable Focused no matter the fluidity Carving streams eroding rocks Strengthened in adaptability Transformative in the flow. Harness the power of the flow
Ever Grateful for a powerful caption that once caught my eye
“Don’t bite more than you can chew….”
Denotes the wisdom of moderation in life and living. To know a cut off point Is to know where to draw the line between exhaustion and excitement.
Simply taking on more work or responsibility or trying to multitasking beyond your abilities and capacities is self defeating. So only commit to what you truly can deliver . Not less not more. So grateful to have read this many years ago and consistently practice this learning. Happy to share this piece of advice that is my mindful reminder before taking on more.
