contemplation

Seeing you last night,

Dear Cosmic Dancer,

Released me from

A 1,000 ways

Of hiding from your Love.

No more hiding.

As rhythmless as I am,

Accept me as your student.

 

 

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.

 

When I sit,

My ego fades away

But quickly returns

When I check

How long I sat for.

Sitting is a no-time no-ego zone.

Time strings the ego along.

I relax the muscles

Of the mind;

Rest the desires

Of the heart;

And stretch the limbs

Of infinite love

To wake up

In the company

Of your divinity.
