Life fully present

I love life with awareness
Of what really matters here
It’s larger than our thinking
Life fully present
 
How can one live in the now
Not robbed by the past deep hurt
Or fearful of the future
There is an answer
 
It is not easy
Because we are what we think
Space to examine
To observe how we process
Life’s most important issues
 
I create space to stop thinking
To detach and be quiet
Aware of another world
Above my ego

    Terry – here is a quote that this poem brought to mind: “We need to find God, and He cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature – trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence… We need silence to be able to touch souls.”

    Mother Teresa
