What I really, really want …

“When people are ready to, they change. They never do it before then, and sometimes they die before they get around to it. You can’t make them change if they don’t want to, just like when they do want to, you can’t stop them.” ~ Andy Warhol

The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.

Don’t go back to sleep.

You must ask for what you really want.

Don’t go back to sleep.

People are going back and forth across the doorsill
where the two worlds touch.

The door is round and open.

Don’t go back to sleep.

… you must ask for what you really want …

this has been an exercise the past week or so. so many people and Source itself bringing this to light.

what do you want?

seems like a simple question but i haven’t been making it so. so i have broken it down to the smallest of steps.
and then there are the things i want at the moment that i can’t have no matter how much i want them. and they become future things. and a practice in letting go of frustration and then turning the mind back to now. simply Now.

for instance. i really wanted to take a nap in the afternoon or at least just veg and watch cartoons and be quiet.

i could not do that.

so i focused on what i wanted inside what i had to do … and that became a speedy drive without incident and … i got that.

so it’s yet another learning process and a way into peace.
