Being still

An image comes
No thought can be without one
I wonder if…
Maybe we can
Erase the picture
Lose the thought
What if it was gone
No more repeating
No more suffering

Maybe we could instead
Let the image be in our head
Watch them pass
Be the witness
Like clouds on a windy day
Like children running in the park
Like snow tumbling
Leave our energy to our soul

Let’s send our energy to the new
Allow ourselves to create
Allow ourselves to grow
Become a shining light
Become the butterfly

Be…just be
Silent like the deep blue sea
Quiet like the sleeping bear
At peace like the highest peak
Calm like the windless day
Beauty like nature
Bright like the light of the sun

It’s time to shine
it’s time to let go
It’s time to love
It’s time to accept
It’s time to surrender
It’s time to be still

Small steps now

The struggles on the surface of our unconscious mind-controlled life of past and future are not real. Most humans for most of their existence spend their time trapped within a mind-made self, a story, created by thought. None of this thought is our actual real life that is this conscious moment, the moment that is forever now.

Yet, through our conditioning, we believe this unconscious state is real and normal.

It is in fact, insanity.

When we are fully conscious and awake, aware fully of our surroundings, our inner energy, our own breathing, our own connectedness with all that is, then the mind state dissolves, thought leaves. In this state, we do not allow our emotions and reactions to control us, we do not allow our thoughts to be energised and to be taken seriously.

We are then not likely to have hate, anger, jealousy, judgement, addictions, highs and lows, and we are likely to be still, silent and at peace.

Once we start on this path towards inner peace, then it is the beginning of the end of suffering and pain that is the mind-state. However, like all things, we have to be prepared to sacrifice, to commit to a spiritual practice, to unlearn our conditioning and to accept what is.

Small steps taken now is the path to inner peace.
