This is the only moment.

Breathing in,
I calm body and mind.

Breathing out,
I smile.

Dwelling in the present moment I know this is the only moment.

Joy

Why do what you will regret?
Why bring tears upon yourself?
Do only what you do not regret,
And fill yourself with joy.

Gautama Buddha

Ready for whatever may come

Not being tense but ready.
Not thinking but not dreaming.
Not being set but flexible.
Liberation from the uneasy sense of confinement.

It is being wholly and quietly alive,
aware and alert, ready for whatever may come.


Bruce Lee

A clear mind

We cannot see our reflections in running water.
Its is only in still water that we can see.

Path of the enlightened

The path of the enlightened one leaves no track,
it is like the path of birds in the sky.


Gautama Buddha

The reality of liberation

Nirvana manifests as ease,
as love,
as connectedness,
as generosity,
as clarity,
as unshakable freedom.

This isn’t watering down nirvana.
This is the reality of liberation that we can experience,
sometimes in a moment and sometimes in transformative ways that change our entire life.
