Absorption

Simple is a strategy. I don’t remember where, or from whom, I read or heard this. I know it caused me great pause in the early years of building my coaching practice as I learned that the more narrow my focus, the broader my impact.

In so many ways, mostly related to openness to awareness, I am encouraged by where we are in this 21st Century. However, it is sad reality that we are losing the ability to take opportunity to focus, to be absorbed by any one thing requiring our attention in order for it to become one with the work of our art.

My maternal grandfather would quite often say to me, “Presently.” As I grew, I assumed he was saying this only to quiet any excitement I was projecting onto the next thing I wanted to do. As I grow closer to the age he was then, I realize he was also teaching me to be present with what was before me, to pay attention.

Indeed, we are free to choose where to place our attention.

Simply Chosen

Once said to me,
a wise friend’s words,
Everything is a choice.

What in our world might change,
if engaged by her words, we each
accepted choice, as fact?

A history of sin, seemingly ingrained,
could we put it aside, and
with intention, forgive everything;
and offer our energy, individually
to the moment, where we find
ourselves together?

One-by-one we would then
hold together, in the present,
all that has been, and
all that can be.

And in such present space
might we know, see through
hope, that everything belongs,
and nothing is wasted
in choosing a love view?

Now seeing, a clear lens
of love in play, we trust
a view, from the pinnacle
of original intent, to serve
a story unfolding,
for me, for you, for us.

–J. Brunson
