I often tell myself, slow down Carl
You are moving too fast to see it all
Take the time to look around
The whole world is a treasure
Just waiting to be found.
I must admit sometimes I digress
I get blinded, I get rattled, I get stressed
These are the times that I disobey my soul
I go into autopilot and I start to go with traffics flow
I’m normally the one who is out in the lead
But when I am not actively steering
I start moving at a pace, that I know I shouldn’t be.
I know Its honestly, partially a shame
That someone so blessed with perception
Has the ability to ever lose sight of the game
To lose the feel
When you have an inside track
On what is and what is not real
Yeah sometimes I am not driving
I’m just passing by
And that means I have messed up
And I am no longer present in my own life
I have gone into autopilot.
I have made this mistake to me too many times
I have run over the line as I got lost in mind
I am blessed to have love because I can often hear the voice say
You want to go right you have to pray
And with faith you take control and drive it that way
But nowhere is where it will lead
if in place is where you stay
You must at least be actively trying
If there is somewhere you know you should be
You have to start driving
You need to shift it into gear
You need to take be engaged on the drive, you need to actively steer.
Groundhog Day, Autopilot its all the same thing
You will lose sight of your blessings
When you stop being actively engaged and just start speeding
So I am thankful for the voice that continues to be a voice in my head
Because when I start veering off that way
He directs me back this way instead.
You Need To Drive, You Need To Steer, You Need To Be Actively Engaged You Need To Be Here.
