The opposite of contemplation is not action, it is reaction

Pure action, always proceeds from a contemplative silence in which we are able to listen anew to what is really happening.

Without some degree of silence, we are never living, never tasting, as there is not much capacity to enjoy, appreciate, or taste the moment as it purely is.

Act on this dichotomy

You have plenty of time but also have no time.

So either you act on this knowledge, or you find an excuse.

Keep in mind though,
“Not Now” can be the shortest way to hell.
As much as wrongly chosen “Now” can be…

Choice means failure!

Don´t choose!

Act

Unfortunately, I speak – I hear

Wake up call.

If your house was burning, and if you are reasonably sane
you wouldn´t sit engaging in love novels,
but find a solution to quench the fire.

The situation is critical.
WE BLUNTLY REFUSE TO ADMIT IT.

Instead of taking right action in order to find sustainable
solutions to impending matters,
we indulge in inept and nonsensical imbecility,
stubbornly overlooking
WHAT REALLY AND OBJECTIVELY IS HAPPENING
within and around us.

Our cowardice and refusal to see will
have fatal consequences…
