I try not to wait, since awaiting creates in me a palpable sense of lack and diverts me from the wonder of right now. Here is a poem, “Happy About” I wrote that attempts to clarify this. (Click “Read More” to see it in a more graphic-friendly form)…
Too often I am happy about;
Happy about my relationships,
Happy about my successes,
Happy about things that go my way.
But I discard every about, for...
But I discard every about, for each is a self-created formula for discontent.
Each about is a choice that constrains my happiness.
Each about is a desire empowered to inhibit my peace.
Each about is a stumbling block I place on my own path.
Each about is a barrier to my true Self.
I am happy about nothing.
I am simply happy.
I am free.
