Active Awareness


you have heard the expression

“If you want to hear God laugh

tell him your plans!”

Lives spent


making calendars for

planning ahead,

electronic devices

tracking our whereabouts


satellite GPS,

may call

for some TIMEOUT.

There can be so much

to do

in a day,

a week,

a month,

I realized

I needed

to find a perspective.

This is now

my mantra:

“I no longer

make a plan

for myself,

but respond

to the things in my life

that are part of

a pattern

or a plan

I cannot see.”

On the surface,

these words may sound


but they remind me

to strive for

active awareness.

While I may not


in control of events,

I can be ready

to respond.
