I went off in
of me and myself
by doing and thinking
and creating and loving
and hoping and dreaming and
I found there is
activity in not doing, and
thought in not thinking, and creation
in not creating, and
love in not loving, and
hope in not hoping, and
dreams in not dreaming and
I AM by not being.
Once I stopped
I discovered everything.
