The Value of a Seed Look in my hand, what you see is a seed. This seed I hold though must be freed to live in its potential. This seed, will become a tree that will one day bear fruits and those fruits too will also have seeds - potential trees, if only you can see more than what is before you if only you can see not what is but what could be. Now it is tiny and useless it seems hard and of little significance even. But if you plant and water it, this seed will exceed even your vision of what it can be.
And So You Can
And So You Can Fit ambitious man and woman. And so you can, do what you set out to do. But know the going will be slow and no guru man can set your plans and lands before you. You see no one can set you up and make your dream dreams. Never outran yourself to fold somewhere on the a shelf in defeat and disbelief of your true potential. And so of course you can, find the wealth undefind by the world that would have you sell yourself.
Final Thoughts Any final words today? Any way to beat this rain as I go my way? Do you have words of wisdom after skimming off the scum off your system? Now that you see the light lend me your shades or does it fade with time? I will let you speak - but one more question. Was it worth it?
I will Feed You
I will Feed You I see you struggle to make ends meet. I hear you cry in pain, scarred and battered. Shattered by disappointment you lay prone borken. I smell all the anxiety pouring out of you boring a river of gloom. I taste your fear as it jumps out of your chest and attempt to cut you down to nothing. I feel your roughed form deformed twisted into a million shapes as you try to fit into those tight spaces. Here let me feed you a bone broth of optimism - you have a future. No storm can get you here no drought shall find you dry empty. When your tears flow enough to drown ten thousand I will send out the rainbows to remind you of the promise. When you think your are empty you will be filled, nourished for life. I will remind you to keep going keep living keep being. I will be there when you reach far enough dig deep enough. I will be the gratitude that feeds your optimism.
How to defeat bad habits? When procrastination is your best friend and negative talk has been your only support for so long, how do you have a reversal of fortunes?
I am sure that asking the questions are easier than answering them. It is normal to seek inspiration and the motivation to do great things from outside. From those who have overcome obstacles that seemed impossible to overcome. However, does it really matter if we are inspired by others or from within? I once heard an actor say he was never inspired by another actor. So how and why did he become one? Well there are specific things that each of us want to accomplish or would like to achieve, should we wait on someone to come along and inspire us to take the plunge and pursue what we want to pursue?
I have come to realize that it is easy to become swept away by the expectations of others and end up going in circles. If everyone was to do everything and make all their decisions based on what they thought others expected then most dreams would die a swift death. The greatest blockage to our success in any area of life, can be our unwillingness to make the tough decisions, because we don’t want to offend or disappoint anyone.
However, maybe it is time to make those decisions and forget about being a disappointment. Maybe, just maybe, it’s okay to be inspired from within and not from anyone. Maybe it’s okay not to have fantastic heroes that are goals, but a quiet confidence about what lies within.
Maybe we should not aim to inspire anyone but just be real, and that means being willing to show the strengths and vulnerability as they naturally occur.
