A Fork In Every Road

Eternal choices. You name it. It could be as simple as either doing something or doing nothing. The desired effects may vary and conversely by doing nothing one might bring about change even for good. Some things have to stew in their own juice. Most things, however, need action as in stirring the pot.

Setting events in motion might be enough. But most of the time maintenance is required. And observation.

Awareness is the most overlooked quality to develop. What's going on? What can I do? Being kept busy keeps us from asking ourselves what's important. Even me these days. Just look at the lag time on this blog. Distractions aplenty can facet our lives so that there is little time to concentrate.

And there is doubt or confusion that can result.

Of course, we can handle many things and seemingly at once.

It's a matter of focus. It's a matter of doing more than one thing at a time.

It's a matter of knowing the score, the truth.

I think eyes on the prize is appropriate. That prize is Freedom, faster dwindling though we are cosseted and continuing to be lulled into a very false sense of security.

Isn't that a key word? It almost rolls off the tongue, seductively.

Put your mind on hold and do what you're told.

Then, SLAM! Something happpens to shake you loose.

Perhaps it's always the feeling things aren't right.

And you have to decide which way to go.

A fork in every road.

A dead end or place to make things right.

Like the preamble to Duke Wayne's Alamo. 'The eternal choice of men. To endure oppression or to resist.'
