#PoetrySunday - 6/28/20

Long moments of silence can make space for truth.

#PoetrySunday - 6/28/20

ZAZEN

On a pale and ordinary day
I sat with new friends
And discovered that true joy
Is in the fear
Is in the anger
Is in the exhaustion
Is in the hope
Is in the surrender
Is in the loss
Is in the win
    that is experienced without judgement.

Long moments of silence can make space for truth,
Unfettered by the limits we insist are in our best interests.
Open now
To the dissolution of the self.
Come home. Reunite with The All.

You’ve been waiting.
