Slow down, walk, don’t run
Change the tempo
Watch for detail.
It will appear.
A fluctuation in the foundation
Makes us feel uncomfortable, off balance
Where is the familiar?
Old assumptions have got to go.
Where is the downbeat in the rhythm of the pattern
That makes us feel safe?
Question, adjust, and revise
How wonderful to know
It is in the realm of possibility
To alter and rearrange
The shape of our thoughts
Just from a change of pace
And the plasticity of our being.
Tectonic plates shifting
How to value who we are
What we choose to do,
Continue to do,
The invisible is more powerful than all of us.
The opportunity for change is here now.
Explore the clues,
Heal the pain,
Pursue wholeness as we travel along the path
Of our new story that we are creating.
