Then we breathe

Sometimes there is only silence
It’s dark
It’s cold
There is still
The moon shines

We sit alone
We observe
We wait
We see
We hear

The inhale of breath
The exhale follows
There’s the gap
Between the exhale
And the new breath

There in the gap
There is life
There is the moment
There is the connection with all
There is the universe

Silence is life
The stillness teaches
The moment unfolds
Without sound
Then we breathe

The world does not need my opinion

The world does not need my view about everything all the time, in fact, I don’t need my view about everything all the time either. It’s just constant mental noise.

It’s OK not to have a view at all.

It’s a lot more peaceful for others and for me if I am content with just being and observing.

When we observe we listen and hear the other person and the beautiful world around us.
