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 endeavour, if you already have one.
There's no room for anything, if you’re already full -
If you’re holding on and can’t let go
If you’re clinging to what is and oblivious to what could be.
My point is
Space equals potential,
It’s only in the emptying, that you can be full
And only in giving that you can receive.
It’s only in clearing your calendar that new possibilities emerge
