Spirit tells me that awareness always comes
Before response, however limited or distorted
That awareness might be.
Knowing that it’s raining outside may inspire us
To dress appropriately for that particular
Weather condition, before we open the door.
Or, we may choose to remain indoors until
The rain decides to stop.
We adapt, each in our own way and to an
Individual degree, to whatever situation
Life presents us with.
We choose how and why to face it, or not to,
Or, at least not yet.
Is one of us stalling for time?
Yes, you are.
