Change Nothing Changes


Started a new set of prompts – I love lists of things – this one will prove to be endlessly productive for another couple of years – 227 Rules For Monks. Who knew the simple life could be so complex. These are from the 30 nissaggiyas. This is where 14. Not to purchase another floor carpet as long as the former is not six years old yet. took me.

Change Nothing Changes

if nothing changes

nothing changes

safe is secure

but it isn’t always productive

constructing a life

that is safe and secure

denies the power of insecurity

the energy of being unguarded

things work fine

leave them be

why replace what is still working

even for a newer faster model

what will I do with the time I save

find more ways of being

safe and secure

of not taking any creative chances

why change the scenery

what’s the point of a new shoes

when all the old ones

are perfectly fine

why moan about the lack of growth

when growth means being open to change

it’s as if

only the dramatic change

is worth seeking out

as if growth only comes from

the greatest pointless risk

that surviving danger

is the only catalyst for moving forward

though why move forward

when things are as good as they need to be

boredom contentment


the new hair cut

the step away from all black

to blue and yellow

the opportunity to replace

what works fine

is to be open

to what may work the same

yet move things forward

you want change

let go of the comfortable

that defines one

step into uncertainly

with the certainty things will change
