The Big Choice


Time to realise
that fundamental question
your inner voice asks
will never be “Yes or no?”
But rather “Now or later?”

  2. This is both profound and powerful, Ben. A stark realization that somehow brings relief…

  3. No apologies needed, my friend. I checked the link and it is something I’ve read about before. Will go back later and read in detail to refresh my memory. 😆

    • Whether consciously or not I think this knowledge has continued to live within us, Betty. Then whenever we come across this kind of truth something lights up within us and we are drawn closer.

  4. I agree – it’s what makes us resonate. Years ago a very special teacher taught about the seven steps or stages of everything from the physical to the most abstract spiritually symbolic. The seven roughly correspond to Plato’s seven “forms”. Though there are only six Mahayana perfections, I think they would also correspond. The 7th is the highest, most ineffable, and it embodies the other six. My old poem “Octave” was my feeble attempt to show the spiraling in our evolution from one stage of awareness to the next – higher and higher until we reach a state beyond cosmic consciousness. And no doubt this all corresponds to your own ideas and conceptions. Same path, just different semantics.
