Honest (for Sunday Scribblings)

The honest truth

That I am 
You think I am

I think I am

Of the above

Going home

Every morning I retreat into my cross-legged abode
The body in perfect position to settle the mind
I walk the familiar steps of my practice
Without expectation
And sometimes
Out of the blue
A door opens
And I go home
To that place of stillness and peace
Where everything is already perfect

Laziness and Resistance

Here you are again

Like shadows following my every step
I can’t shake you off
No matter how fast I run
You don’t understand the word “no”
You won’t go away when I ask you

So instead I shall try and embrace you
Even praise you
Sit down
Keep me company

I shall overcome you with acceptance
And love you into defeat

Suspended Reality (for Sunday Scribblings)

When I suspend my beliefs for just a moment
Let go of what I grasp at as real
I enter the space beyond the stories
The gap where past and future don’t exist
And dwelling in that concept-less abyss
Allows me to see clearly
What my true nature is
