Life without a Script

To watch is not to control,
Influence is not pulling back one hand-
With the other,
But watching the stivings
Of the man you thought you were,
Till they cease,
Then watching on in wonder-
At what comes next;
Life without a script
And no starring character.

    Hi Mark!
    What a perfect description, in a minimalist way, of the inner process that is going on presently in all of us humans who chose to evolve to the next way of Being…

    Again me: I would very much like to quote this entire little poem of yours (with your name of course) in my new post, as it relates quite meaningfully to something which just happened in my life this morning, and which became the topic of my new post. Please let me know if you agree?

        Thanks for the authorisation, dear Mark (but please don’t call me ‘Braga’, or I’ll call you Marx!!!), the post is already up, with the title ‘Towards a Race Without Ego’. I hope I didn’t misinterpret your poem!… πŸ™‚

    “Yey!” to life without a script. How boring life would be if everything is scripted…kinda like those coloring books where you color by the numbers. Hate those! πŸ˜‰
