Being present to a piece of peace

StillnessMy musings on mindfulness practice…

“What do I look for when there is nothing to gaze at?

What do I hear, when I still all noises without ‘n within?

What do I feel, when I open myself to myself?

What do I say, when I commune silently with my soul herein?

Being present to a piece of peace,

Brings me closer to my self that lives within, a stranger till now unknown.

Being present to a piece of peace,

Brings me to a doorway that invites a dive into a kindly vortex where senses don’t count.

 

Why does it seduce me to stay longer to peer into a boundless vortex?

Why does it pull me towards it? Only opposites are supposed to attract!

Why does it feel like a sludge has been skimmed off?

Why does it vaporise the confusion while wonderment enacts?

Being present to a piece of peace,

Soaks me, envelopes me, surrounds me in the loving oneness.

Being present to a piece of peace,

Brings me upfront with the dreams, entrusted only to me to construct.

 

How does it allow the knowing, just when I hush the knowledge I have?

How does it bring more happiness, well-being and joie de vivre?

How does it heal, with a mere concoction of time and intention?

How does it create magic when my ‘clown’ and my ‘magician’ vanish altogether?

Being present to a piece of peace,

Is an indulgence we were born to savour every moment of our life.

Being present to a piece of peace,

Is my breath, my safest haven – shielding me from the gust around”.

– Harmeet Anand
