May I be open to possibilities

The range of what we think and do is limited by what we fail to notice. And because we fail to notice that we fail to notice, there is little we can do to change; until we notice how failing to notice shapes our thoughts and deeds.― R. D. Laing

For common belief entails that All that is caused must be When agency intervenes or acts And all effects are causal Brought about by Some thing or some being

But notice how all that is caused Occurs spontaneously when Nurturing conditions prevail

Agency may create The conditions for happenings But conditions themselves Can never cause happenings

For it is well known that All phenomena align stochastically To a marked preference In conducive conditions As evidenced at the quantum level

What is needed of you is To observe how all happenings Are a reflexive response To the conditions prevailing In and around you

To waste little effort in futile Imaginings of manifestation But notice the prevailing conditions That make things happen And turn your concerted attention Towards something, or to turn away from it
