Where do you put your energy?
Where do you direct your fire?
Do you prefer to be right,
or to be at peace is your real desire?
Pay attention then
Where do you focus your perception
in the flaw of your brother?
in the imperfection of his argument?
and if that’s the case of your intention
why do you even bother?
Let me tell you
you are free of choosing
that’s your legitimate right
but why would you choose to reproduce more separation,
inflicting more pain…
isn’t your ego in the middle of the way?
I prefer to look within
and clear my misperceptions
patiently and lovingly
so I can look at you with the same patience and love
You may be super wrong.
Many times I believe you are,
but I don’t prefer to be right anymore
I prefer to feel the oneness instead
to savor your mirroring, to drop the drama, to feel the joy
that’s the biggest pleasure of all!
I find my highest self when I forgive
when I let go of all my beliefs and just accept what now is
then I feel good, then I feel God
then a sweet voice whispers ´Pay Attention, Love
Just laugh at my biggest joke:
to reach God
you need to learn how to be human…
So don’t ever lose your hope.´
