There are times to be patient
and times to act.
Times to rise up strong and independent
and times to sink to the floor in surrender.
Change may very well ask you to be wildly proactive one day
and hands off the next,
an outspoken go-getter one week
and a quiet listener before the next rolls around.
Your best chance at riding out flux
is to remain fluid in all things
and unduly attached to none
This need not be backbreaking work,
though flexibility and the willingness to
shake the ridigity out of your bones are key.
Resist the temptation to jump to conclusions too early.
Do not hurdle over obstacles in your rush to reach a destination
before tasting the fullness of the journey.
The endless procession of choices and opportunities
will continue with or without you:
haste is a waste of your energy.
You will never be able to speed up change
or slow its inherent momentum,
and why would you want to?
Every stage of the process comes bearing its own gifts.
An inability to adapt will strip you of valuable dividends
and the wealth they contain.
