The Arrow

The Arrow

The origin of the word “sin” means “To have missed the mark”
To have aimed for the bullseye but lodged it in the bark
Whenever arrow strays from goal and travels way off course
It is not target’s fault, but rather fault of arrow’s source
A lack of concentration on the shot we need to make
A failure to notice the wind or the arm’s subtle shake
A moment not taken to breathe, to relax and converge
To block out all distractions and superfluous to purge
If the arrow is to hit its mark, the eyes must stay
Laser-focused on the path and not for moment stray
The same is said for virtue, if we are to be our best
Our focus must not deviate from honorable quest
Only when we turn attention to things off the path
Do we feel the guilt of sin, its rueful, shameful wrath
Take a deep breath in and then slowly let it half out
Release the arrow and be sure of its intended route

    This so reminded me of a post I did some years ago now I reposted again in part here
    As I got a message from Spirit to Take up the Arrow .. Aim it true…

    Miro you have taken up the arrow and you aim it well… I hope more will see the target you are aiming at Miro, and will take up their own bow and see how well they can achieve all that they set their sights on.. Blessings your way.. and I have enjoyed my time here this morning..
    _/\_ Thank you
