The Pause

When compulsion to prove my point overcomes me

And my need to respond is fuelled by urgency,

My mind races to be right

My senses rise to the fight

And then I reluctantly remember…

The Pause.

The humbling, painful Pause

The uncomfortable, brakes-on Pause

The beautiful, let-things-sit Pause

That turns my focus from agitation

To curious investigation

Unravelling my defences to uncover a

deeper wisdom.

The Pause that is active yet still,

Noticing but not heavy lifting

Permission granter for things to unfold

Space creator for quiet questions to evolve.
