Quiet Consideration

By Tony DeLorger © 2012


In the solitude of thought

comes the silent rhetoric of persuasion,

the blatant misguided fuel of bias and belief,

impassioned and born of subconscious conclusions.

How often we listen to this inner voice,

this muttering that defies logic and common sense,

to twist truth into malleable fodder for thought,

yet unconsidered in the light of reality.

This is not intuition, no inner truth,

but decisions past,

delivered to birth by fractious deeds,

oppression and slight of hand.

Why we consider our own voice to be true is ironic,

when we fall so perfectly over and over in life,

at the hands of our reticence and inaction,

choosing not to change from the fear of possibility.

How different life would be in acceptance,

conscious decisions that come from a knowing heart,

an intuition of potentials not fear of failure,

the building block of our past folly and bias.

That inner voice resounds strongly in a mind

adept at self-knowledge and acceptance,

always listening to a heart’s voice to confirm movement,

to realise how pure a thought is, and from where is has come.

Listening is our greatest gift of learning.

Thanks ImKarn. That is true; so many people follow a repetitive and unaware path, learning the most simply of lessons. But we all pass through this in our path to enlightenment. We are all different but ultimately the same.

Loved this Tony! Altho, it begs the question: what else can mere humans do? We are fated to travel the same path repeatedly..only the very evolved learn a new way! Awesomevoted
