M.E.D.I.T.A.T.I.O.N. March 7, 2010

Posted by nrhatch in Meditation, Mindfulness, Poetry, Word Play.

Mindful of the moment

Exploring the silent stillness

Discovering the timeless truths

In between passing thoughts

Touching the eternal present

Anchored in our breath

Time to just be.

Inspired we realize

Our thoughts mean nothing

Now is all there is.

“the eternal present anchored in our breath” Depth and metaphysical it takes time to ingest and now is realistically all we have. Very good. When you have a chance, would love you to check out 1markt.wordpress.com

I’ve been around for a peek . . . but your blog is hard reading for my aging eyes.

Black on white is much less tiring for my eyes than white on black. : )

That is very clever

” If you understand, things are just as they are……….
If you do not understand, things are just as they are”..

Zen saying

When you stop looking . . . the answers appear.

Yes! So true. The folly of youth.. “I must have the answer right now!”,
Unfortunately, it has taken the better part of a lifetime for me to
understand the error in that line of thought.
It has also taken an equal amount of time to learn that (NO) is an answer.

When we learn to patiently let life unfold, the answers start to appear before we even have a chance to voice the questions.

Of course, even after I have learned a spritiual “truth,” I find that I periodically need a refresher course. : )

my favorite: “time to just be”. With how busy people’s lives are today, I think we all need more time to relax and just be..

Agreed. Even if someone isn’t interested in meditation as the vehicle, just sitting and listening to a piece of classical music for 20 minutes, while putting extraneous thoughts on the back burner, can improve the flow of the rest of their day.

Thanks for reading and sharing.

Very clever and right to the point…

Good line, Nancy “anchored in the present”. Wonder what makes us want to fight that anchor and throw it elsewhere…

Thanks for acknowledging the photo. Much appreciated.

Thank you! I added the Buddha to this post “after the fact” and realized today that it didn’t include an active link to you. Oddly enough, the last comment on this post (before yours) was exactly 3 years ago today. 😉

It’s so easy to use the past as a frame of reference, losing our place in the here and now. .

Aha…I didn’t even notice the year! I remember you using the photo before – so just thought you had some ‘attachment’ to that particular style of Buddha.

I love your Buddha because he’s LAUGHING! 😆
