When the time is right, make your meditations.
When another time arrives, perhaps then it is time to move forward
… or perhaps retreat.
You will know by your meditations.
Do not think before you dream, but dream before you think.
Do not request of your dream carriage a specific thought about which to dream.
Rather, let you dreams carry you where they will.
I you believe that you must think more than you must meditate your vessel is landlocked.
Consider then in your thoughts the far reaches of your journey;
all the places you may decide to visit, observe and experience.
Let not your mind dominate your heart with its mental contrivances
that say, “I am more important than you.”
Those are concoctions by the mind for the mind.
Such are the childish notions
that challenge the wisdom of your heart.
Search far and wide for the sources of your secrets
… and you will understand that those sources are within,
Your heart knows of poverty and can wear it like cloth worn and frayed.
Your heart knows of luxury and can wear it like a warm coat.
It is your mind that knows only avarice.

The wise move with confidence, led by their eyes,
while the fool uses rashness, false courage and tries
to walk in the dark looking only toward
that which his desire agrees to afford.
He knows there are pitfalls he surely must miss
for if he does not he can blame with a hiss
the Maker of Trails with whom fault surely lies
in thinking all walkers will have open their eyes.
