I tried to stop the mind from thinking.

What a joke!

As if I could stop the sun from shining.

These two are powerful forces of nature.

Neither good nor bad,

And often quite helpful.

When the mind is not,

The best I can do

Is to find some shade

Under the branches of mindful presence

And all-inclusive Love.

Today,

I move through the world

In a sitting position

Seeking after Life

With all my senses.

I’m like a dog,

Sniffing every scent,

In search of its Master.
