Words are an encumbrance

Words are an encumbrance


Words are an encumbrance to thought.

When we wish for direct communication with the inner nature of things

It is the consciousness of reason that holds us back.

Thus we can only regard these outward trappings, as obstacles,

On the way to gaining a clear perception of truth.

John Audet


You cannot do everything

You cannot do everything


You cannot

Do everything for everyone

You cannot

Do everyone else’s job as well as your own

You cannot

Take responsibility for everyone else’s actions

You cannot

Neglect your own duties

You can only do so much each day.

The importance of things

The importance of things


Do the important things in your life fit into the way you want to live?

And have you set your priorities in the right order?

And what’s the result?

Do you know what you are supposed to be doing with your life?

And if you don’t know, you had better find out before it’s over

And if you do know, are you doing it?

John Audet

We are ever insensitive

We are ever insensitive


We are ever insensitive to those who love and provide for our needs

In silence and without reward,

But the time will come

When for our heartlessness and assumptions upon their loyalty,

That we shall find ourselves alone and abandoned

By these the noblest of friends.

John Audet

Today has come

Today has come

Today has come no matter what we have done

Whether we embrace its individuality


Change with the times


 Whether we resist it


Try to stay in yesterday

Nevertheless, it is so

We can either develop with it


Control our destiny

Or die in the memories of the past,

For today must be welcomed, for it is.
