One and Many

Am I supposed to struggle

to look like them

act like them

follow rules made by them

that hold up standards

created by them

so one day

I can be one of them

(or appear to be)

completing tasks

with outcomes

desired by them

so important to them

all the while

Denying this world

of me

and what I’m

here to do

Or should I stretch

my small space

as I grow

the truly special

gifts that lay dormant

within me

until it begins to BE

that they

and we

and you

and me

are ONE

and many ๐Ÿ™‚






Nice Noodles

Put some pasta in a pot
Fill it with water
Crank up the heat
Walk away

When it boils over
Think wow, what a disappointing noodle.

Such a sad mistake.

For you.

For the noodle.
Watch the pot
Was the water too high?
The heat too hot?
Maybe it would have liked a lil stirring?
Sometimes lifting the lid takes the pressure off.
Sometimes I say hey how ya doin?
Ready to come out?
Sometimes it’s clear
Sometimes not,
But I watch and I stir ..I even slide in a lil butter..brings comfort I’ve noticed.
If I put a defenceless noodle into hot water
I can’t expect it to tell me when to get it out..
Or should I?
I can watch the signs
I can see from experience that my
Lil noodle can manage 7 min and no longer than that–when all the variables are routine–
I can respect my noodle and care for it and help it to be the best it can be.

Don’t put your noodles into hot water and get mad at them when they don’t turn out how u wanted.
They need your time,

Your care,

and sometimes a different pot.

Sometimes your noodle will not even care to get boiled at all!

in that case, choose a new path for your noodle..rewrite the world destiny for your personal noodle!
If u walk away
Ignoring the water boiling over the sides…
Or give up on them for not coming out of that boiling water and being up to your standards…
You are not making pasta,
You’re making a mess๐Ÿ
