self observation

Moving through the unending forest

Where thoughts grow

I must watch where I step

Or trip and fall

Over the hidden roots

Of thoughts planted

Long before I became aware of the forest.


There are other ways to travel.

I could follow the trail of stillness

Until I take flight

To rise above it all.

The roots won’t get me,

But I must now watch out for branches.

While my mind explores and magnifies doubts,

I rest in the knowledge of the perfection of all things, including my mind.

What is your mind doing now?

The way to find out is to sneak up on it from behind.

Actually, that might not work. Your best bet is to invite your Self to help.

Your Self is a master observer.

Leave everything to the Self.
