throw yourself like seed


today someone was explaining something and they said that they didn’t like to be given advice. they don’t mind it if they ask for it but people shouldn’t volunteer their opinions if they weren't asked for them. (and no, as hard as it is to believe he wasn’t talking about me, this guy was leading a discussion and had never met me before ). but i realise that i do that, say what i think and feel as i am thinking and feeling it. i guess it’s annoying and i should learn to stop until asked.

yesterday there was a relatively short but interesting discussion about karma and the golden rule. those old adages like what goes around comes around, reap what you sow, do unto others as you will have them do unto you. i love talking about stuff like that cause you really do get quite an in-sight into people and their thinking, their character, their level of responsiveness and their sense of humour when you discuss abstract things.

i often wonder about life and fate - if things really do happen for a reason - was i suppose to meet that person for a reason, walk that way home when something unusual happens, read that particular passage in a book that changes my thinking. obviously i think way too much and ask far too many whys of people sometimes. just interested in what people think. i grow by listening.

it’s so cold outside today. tonight i feel sleepy, quiet, reflective, sitting here all wrapped up in a fleecy blanket. i feel like reading and responding to a few blogs but i can’t seem to able to do that here yet so i guess i should just go and do some work or something productive. i feel like working really. a new boss brings new challenges and i am feeling motivated.

throw yourself like seed

shake off this sadness, and recover your spirit
sluggish you will never see the wheel of fate
that brushes your heel as it turns going by,
the man who wants to live is the man in whom life is abundant.

now you are only giving food to that final pain
which is slowly winding you in the nets of death,
but to live is to work, and the only things which lasts
is the work; start then, turn to work.

throw yourself like seed as you walk, and into your own field,
don't turn your face for that would be to turn to death,
and do not let the past weigh down your motion.

leave what's alive in the furrow, what's dead in yourself,
for life does not move in the same way as a group of clouds;
from your work you will be able one day to gather yourself.

Miss S-S.....I think you should ask if you are curious. People who are curious but never ask might be left in the dark as it were.
