Life doesn’t come in
Everything is not sorted for us
like a ready meal.
No, bits and pieces arrive
as demands are made,
responsibilities press on us and
work need to be done.
And alongside all of this
we have our own personal thoughts,
our hopes and worries, and
our memories and disappointments.
Yes, life comes at us
in a real mixed up way.
And our task is to sort this
and try and make sense of it.
So when people say to me
'Are your writings religious?' or
'Are they about business and work,
or about personal development?'
'Are they about spirituality,
or more about love and kindness?'
I think that they are really
asking the question of themselves.
In which box do I put this?
Please place it anywhere, if it helps you.
I don’t mind, for I’m just passing on
the mixed-up thoughts as they come.
PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT EXERCISE.
1. Which box do you place this perspective in?
