Just for now – want nothing
Don’t wish to be someplace else
Be where you are
Don’t wish for more energy, or less
Watch your breath rise and fall and watch your energy
settle to where it needs to be
Stop planning and remembering
let thought disperse
Like autumn leaves falling
Until all that is left is the calm, clear seeing
of your branch-like mind
Yearn for nothing, no one
Pain or pleasure
Peace or war
Take a break from feeling incomplete
Let the calmness in your mind grow
Plant the seeds of contentment and joy
Don’t look for revenge or seek forgiveness
Just for now
Offer compassion to yourself
Just for now, want nothing
and through this practice
Ease will come
Insight will come
Compassion will grow
We wish you twenty minutes of mindfulness every day!
