November 10, 2020--The Potter and the Clay
Identify with outside things
and define yourself in relationship to them,
and you are lifted up and dragged down,
exalted and humiliated
by all the myriad permutations
of thought, emotion and experience.
Why keep this drama going?
Why seek stability and peace
through that which is neither stable nor peaceful?
You are the one who decides what your life will be.
You breathe life into every relationship
and every circumstance which comes your way.
Lest you gave it life, breath, meaning, purpose,
it would have none.
You are not just the bowl or the cup,
but the potter who turns it and shapes it.
You are not just the clay,
but the one who breathes life into it.
