Sedentary, the mind of the impartial,
the non-committal breath of resistance,
always reluctant to stand for anything,
anything that requires movement.
Innate it can be, but with practice,
indifference becomes a cold, dark disease,
toxic in its rendering,
and insidious in its erosion of motivation.
The mind is an instrument,
an esoteric ability to consider and decide,
movement, whether right or wrong,
is the consequence.
Impartiality is the ultimate resistance,
the ultimate refusal to progress,
maintaining stagnancy as a reality,
and the mind in a state of numb existence.
No matter what we do,
action is the mark of intellect,
a mind in flux and exploring possibility,
through all perceptions and options.
An open mind is an invitation for movement and change,
an acceptance that life, in order to progress, needs participation,
needs an attentive vision, and a decisive attitude,
to imbibe the gifts offered to us all.
