Real Things

Real actions by real people are seated in two overlapping rivers of awareness: the pro-active and the reactive. In their flood these two streams mingle, the mud of reaction browning the clear waters of creation to produce the kind of analyzing that passes for sanity on earth.

The reactive "has to because..."; the pro-active chooses to create. "I intend" is the sole measure of the pro-active heart. The reactive calculates like a pinball machine -- "this means that means these so therefore I must scream now...".

When "I HAVE TO...." becomes "I CHOOSE / WANT / INTEND TO...." accountability becomes a fiery power-generator within the soul. Anything else is a waste of time. On the other hand, time's good for wasting, if not much else.
