Time to gather up loose ends and either whack them off with a meat cleaver,
chew them down to the roots,
or braid them into a strong and glorious whole.
Time to get absolutely clear about which beliefs, qualities,
relationships, and perspectives
you want to bring together and solidify.
How can you streamline the 12 different directions
you seem to be running in?
How can you accentuate the positive
and eliminate the negative?
Right now, strengthen your commitment
to live the life you were put here to live.
Right now, strip away the old, the unnecessary,
the devitalizing, the dramatic.
Minimize your unhealthy attachments and
reinforce the connections that are working for you.
Cull out your endless rationalizations and justifications
and consolidate your responses:
Say Yes, please. Say No, thank you.
Say No, that doesn’t feel appropriate.
Say Yes, that feels appropriate.
Weed your inner and outer gardens, your kitchen cupboards,
your email address book, that wayward pile of notes to yourself
that you’re never going to answer.
Strengthen the foundation under your spiritual life,
your true family, your sense of Home,
your most heartfelt desires.
Stop carting around half-empty vessels of pure potentiality,
partially-eaten plates of emotional nourishment,
pitiful leftovers of personal power,
and shallow snippets of authenticity,
and synthesize the pieces into
one coherent and efficient whole.
Right now, today,
consolidate one small, manageable
area of your life.
Find one singular, simple way to
be whole now.
