Of Good and Greatness
With the beginning of the new year we often think about what we wish, want or will achieve this year. Such thoughts can also bring a sense of sadness at what we haven’t yet achieved or experienced, got or gained, developed or maintained. We may also think about what we could have, should have, will not or won’t ever achieve or fulfil.
However, if we take a moment to move our mind beyond our sense of being a single separate self.
If we mindfully move our mind right; from left-brain thinking to right-brain knowing; we can know, feel and be delighted in the goodness and greatness that is the all of us.
My piece of poetry below expresses this sentiment.
OF GOOD AND GREATNESS
Every one of us and every all of us
Has the potential but maybe not the possibility
To move into the groove of greatness.
Curiously, because of causes and conditions
Of time and place, customs and culture, age and gender;
Limitations replace our possibilities.
It is a great sadness and a source of great sorrow;
That few of us find that final fruition
Of the good and the greatness that we are or possess within us or as us.
Yet there is a joy, a sweet joy;
In delighting in the deliverance of others into their good and greatness;
And a great gratitude for their particular offering to us all; the all that we all are.
