You can’t fill a cup if it’s already full
You can’t furnish a room if it’s already furnished
You can’t paint a master piece without a blank canvas
You can’t be elsewhere, if you have fixed plans
Nor can you start a new venture, if you already committed.
There’s no more room, if you’re holding on and can’t let go
If you’re clinging to what is and oblivious to what could be.
Space means potential,
It’s only in the emptying, that you can be full
And only in giving that you can receive.
If you’re wanting something to change,
You’re going to pull the trigger and make some space
Don’t wait for it to be given to you, claim it.
Because if you don’t, there’s won’t be potential for anything else
And that’s a sure way of getting more of the same.
