Not I

Do you know what I think?

…thoughts.

Do you know what I feel?

…feelings.

Do you know what I know?

…I know that it is the I
that thinks and feels.

And beyond this
there is a self

aware
it is not an I.

Thought for the Day

When I’m caught in the fight
I am blinded by my rightness
fed by the thoughts
of being wronged

On the Last Day

For Dave L & Soph K

on the last day of anything
the beginning of something else
cannot help itself
from happening

even if it wanted to

no will is involved
in this most certain truth

for you and I
a choice exists, as
loss brings space

wherein to enter
a living stillness
and the most certain arising of wisdom

to be with:
what was
what is, and quite simply
what will be

Three Boxes

 

Suspend
redirect
let go

The voice of judgement
cynicism
fear

Open the gate of open mind
open heart
open will

In the presence of stillness
awareness
wise action

Use three boxes to
keep what is valuable
forget what is not
and allow what is emerging
to be born

Which box then to open today?
