No Sittin' on Go

No Sittin’ on Go!


The center
of our bodies--
the guts--
seems to be
our battery,
the starter
of the engine.
Yes, the brain
pushes the button
and away we go
according to plan,
but something inside us
has to say yes.
That's our center.

To Ponder

            1.   Imperfect as we and our ideas may be, we have to start
                  somewhere with something.

            2.   This something is other than an impulsive act, since it
                  comes from deep inside, only a spark perhaps, but
                  resident within us.

            3.   You’re not able to peer around corners, but must go
                  side-by-side with a corner to see what gives.

            4.   The first corner may offer nothing, and require no turn,
                  but you’re now on your way.

            5.   Quietness, as opposed to the rumble of impulse, allows
                  you to listen for the snap of that spark.

            6.   The engine turns over, warms up, is ready.

            7.   You grasp the possibility and push the button. No sttin’
                  on Go!
