Of Two Minds

Surrounded by those who need me,
vie for my attention,
expect answers
and lunch
I yearn for freedom,
for time to myself,
choosing to do
or do nothing.

But when I am alone,
the quiet drives me crazy,
I wander like a lost soul
yearning for someone
to break the monotony
of my thoughts.

Why do I want
the opposite of what I have
rather than being grateful
for right now.

Is there something wrong
with my brain
that only sees and feels
the lack of something
I do not have
in the moment.
As if I think
lacking something
is bad
when really
what I have is all good.

    Thank you Heather. Knowing how to fix and acting on fixing it are two different things, though, aren’t they? 😉

    Reading Eckhart Tolle would help to understand the mind/thoughts when they take the reins and the ego takes over from the stillness of the present moment. Ego runs me most of the time but now I know what is wrong and how to fix it. Such peace in the NOW! Love you!
