I take a deep breath
Followed by another,
My eyes closed
Waiting for the light
Within the darkness
To reveal itself.
The light does not always appear
Sometimes it is but a soft glow,
I chase the glow,
Like looking for shapes within clouds,
Waiting... Hoping... Wishing...
That The Way will be revealed.
I may not be ready to receive,
So, quietly, patiently, I sit in stillness
Breathing... Searching... Seeking...
The truth is within me,
That, I know is certain.
I find many times I want to know,
But do not have the time or patience to understand,
To truly seek the knowledge,
It is sad when being comfortable is acceptable,
Maybe that is why I am never satisfied?
This thing we call meditation
Is not about finding peace,
Cause peace is naturally in us.
It is about revealing the answers
to the questions you did not know to ask,
Using that new found knowledge
to better yourself in ways you did not know were possible.
We open ourselves to the universe
Where all knowledge is exchanged
We then become enlightened
When that knowledge is bestowed upon us
And we are able to finally remember...
...I am all there is.
