“Don’t let a mad world tell you that success is anything other than a successful present moment.”
Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose

Did I forget meditation
when madness
moved too fast?
Has frenzy trapped
my senses!

I won’t listen
to that mocking voice
inside my head.
It speaks without hesitation,
the automatic voice,
that disturbs quietness!

There is beauty in silence.
I find it in the portions
of the inner mind
where peace exists!

The harmony of my consciousness
can be reached.
It dwells in the present moment!

I can no longer
take on despair.
My being is unwilling to accept it,
the weariness
has become apparent.
I won’t hold its toxic form!

Survival is in plain sight.
The regret of yesterday
is confined,
the fear of tomorrow
is only in my imagination.

I will serve stillness
and gaze upon
its attractiveness.
I will become fully acquainted
with restfulness.

I’m running through the fields
of forgiveness.
I’m putting my hope
in contentment.
I’m imbibing the kindness
that costs nothing!

Let me stop and smell
vibrant flowers
and observe that
gigantic moon!
The birdsong is my melody
and the trees
my mentors!

I feel my ego fading
with tranquility
in attendance.

The sun can have
its glory back
as the silence speaks!
