Questioning and Finding Balance

Questioning and Finding Balance
Questioning and Finding Balance

I question so many things,
it occurred to me I may be missing
those things unfurling,
and instead of questioning
just observe their ensuing,
and better understand
the movement of life.

Why must I know
those things I question,
must my life be completed by them,
or do I better understand them
in observance,
to move on and know the more I learn
the less I know.

Questioning is a focus on reality,
a need to acquire understanding,
but how we acquire it is through vigilance
and a quiet attention
that proffers the process of movement,
as life is filled with cycles, cause and effect,
the consequences of thought and action.

Questioning is the path of an inquiring mind,
observance the path of a sagacious mind,
looking to understand,
and without judgement,
know the world in which we live,
for often pursuit is a symptom of pushing,
which countermands our intention.

In questioning I seek to know,
but observance is the real teacher of reality,
and in quiet contemplation
I find solace in my inclination,
and flood my soul with peace,
as the world is filled with inequity
which is the process of seeking balance.

    Very interesting and well phrased thoughts, Tony. Observance is the better teacher. Well done on this great piece.

    Many thanks Phyllis, often subtlety teaches us much about how we think and approach meaning within life. We all so often become lost in habitual thought, when what we need is complete freedom. Cheers!
