from Jeremiah Johnson
“The way that you wander is the way that you choose,
The day that you tarry is the day that you lose.
Sunshine or thunder, a man will always wonder.
Where the fair wind blows.
An Indian says you search in vain for what you cannot find.
He says you’ll find a thousand ways for runnin’ down your time.
An Indian didn’t scream it, he said it in a song,
And he’s never been known to be wrong.
He’s never been known to be wrong.”
and then ……..
~ what comes from listening to my soul ~
My path is not yours
Your path not mine
All that we can do
Is have compassion
for me and you
where we come from
where we go to
our paths barely crossed
perhaps even a time times two
accept what cannot be changed
worry not what comes later
be concerned for now
which is really all we have
in the grand infinite soup
where the highest vibration
is the drumming of that one drum
