Words of the Buddha
To act fully, completely, without hesitation, without regret.
I have forgotten the lessons of my youth. I have slipped, strayed from the Path. I have allowed myself to become confused: ever thinking and rethinking and crashing up into decisions that have become as permeable as brick walls.
I have made more seemly mistakes in the past season that I have in half a decade.
I have been thinking far too much, deciding far too often, walking a direct line far too little.
But it is now a new season. I am stepping back and looking at myself and am ashamed. I have been stutter stepping and stutter speaking my way to a horizon that is shrouded in haze.
I made a big mistake.
A gaze fell errantly and a prophesy was fulfilled.
In my hast I momentarily forgot that once your feet are set a walking, they will take you where you need to go.
“Let the most absent-minded of men be plunged in his deepest reveries – stand that man on his legs, set his feet a-going, and he will infallibly lead you to water . . .”
