Do not hurry
There will be time for everything,
At least, that is, everything that is really important.
Do not hurry,
Just sit to watch the water
falling to the next rock,
follow a drop with your eyes and watch it.
Do not hurry.
And then you may realize
The Gratitude you feel
For having eyes to see.
Do not hurry.
And when you begin to slow
And see, and watch
Slowly, one Gratitude begets another
And having eyes to see
Now also becomes Gratitude
For legs that have gotten you this far along the road.
And though at times,
You may call this road long and lonely,
It is a good road,
When you take away
The demands you place upon it.
When you do not hurry
You make friends with those on the road
And become Grateful for them as well.
Then it is no longer a long road,
But a road long enough
But feels short when you get near the end.
Then the road is now not lonely,
But quietly serene,
As you enjoy your own company,
That sometimes gets complimented by another,
In the appropriate timing.
Then it is no longer a long and lonely road,
But dips and forks when it should
And becomes gravel and back to paved
When you are ready,
When you do not hurry,
But let life be its own experience
Without your constant input
Of how your ego mind thinks it should go.
Relax. Surrender. Receive. Allow. And Trust.
And Trust these words that you hear whispered to you
When you are quiet enough to hear Me inside,
Between your nervous breaths,
Do not hurry!
I have put enough flowers on your path
For you to be inspired.
I’ve put enough people
for you to hear the words you need
From those who have opened their ears
To hear the words I planted there
So they might speak
And share Universal Wisdom.
I’ve put enough food on the Earth
For you to be nourished by
So that you have energy to dance
When you finally feel Me in your feet.
I’ve put enough rhythm in your Soul
For you to sing your way to Heaven.
Go now, but do not hurry.
Each step leads you somewhere
And you must listen in the silence
To hear the appropriate direction.
Go now, but do not hurry,
The road is long enough
But feels short when you get near the end.
