You’ve Got To Live Through The Paradox

Rating: 5.0
You don’t always have freedom
except one type of freedom- one
which nobody can take away from you
whatever situation you are into.

A freedom of choice-this is your own,
for the challenge that the situation has thrown
to either explode or coolly diffuse what's there
with no reaction but calm consideration.

So when you think of each choice, you
think of its consequences and the payoffs,
and how your heart feels from deep inside,
what your microscopic mind is asked to guide.

So you've got to think through your mind,
and tap your heart, too, for the correct decision.
And what the heart would say needs to ‘sync’
with the mind's facts, as also the reason.

Looks Simple? But it’s not so. It’s Art,
for you can’t listen that easily to the heart
against the incessant noise of the mind:
you've got to get really, really smart!

What can you think in an utterly noisy and downright clamored street?
What can you hear but the tumultuous din except
the inaudible signals slipping in?

To put off the noise of regrets, anxiety and fear,
kick out the ghosts of the past and future;
The past is to serve as a sober guide,
the future is to take on the planning sphere.

You’ve got to live through the paradox
of non-doing the noise of thoughts, emotions,
but intensely doing only the present action
with no traces of any type of reaction.

listen to the still small voice inside and then decide. Sometimes too much consideration of the evidence leads to a stalemate Trust your instincts

I thought that was amazing, maybe a little hard to grasp in the beginning, but in a read or two it really shines through. Never stop writing. ;)

thought provoking; the title reads like a thesis; paradox, surely, the givens the unresolves, the challenges, the future; all, make up the present, and qualify the next second

there're plenty of choices but i doubt the freedom to choose...don't too many impersonal forces determine our course?
