Life Beyond the Thoughts

Standard

This moment opens up
as we open ourselves to it.
When we sit and cultivate awareness,
when we train in gentleness and kindness,
suddenly the world
is a more aware, gentle and kind place.
It’s empowering to realize
that it is all in our own heads.
Great. Now we realize
that we have been the crazy ones all along.
It’s absurd!
And now we can laugh
at all of these thoughts,
and gently call ourselves back
to the life beyond the thoughts.
Awareness of the present
might not last for more than a second,
but there is progress being made here.
Someday maybe, just maybe
we can stay aware for two seconds,
the most beautiful two seconds of existence.
