Giving Advice

It’s so easy to have an opinion, and give advice on someone else’s life. People are generally filled with wisdom. I am filled with wisdom over my own life.

I know exactly what I should be doing, and how I should be doing it. What I should and should not be focusing on. What I should be feeling. 

But hearts are rebellious. They follow their own set of rules. They want what they want, when they want it, and they generally want it right now.

I know I should not be jealous. Or envious. Or desire things I shouldn’t. Focus on things that are good and right and helpful. 

And knowing all of these things makes it no easier to put into practice. 


A still dark night

Leaves me alone 

To ponder thoughts,

My fears.

Consumed by anxiety 

I hear the buzz of silence –

That hum when all is still 

A connection, maybe 

With the world that cannot be seen

The dimension that is above

The natural world 

Where our loved ones wait

Patiently to welcome us 

And outside a cricket
