a poem about free will.

Take a breath.

Feel the space
between the stimulation
and the response.

When you shine your light of awareness
into that space,
it widens.

This is where you truly have
free will.

Suddenly, you are not identifying
as the reaction to stimuli.

You become awareness itself
— this is the work.

Everything else is just
inspired, effortless action.
