The speed of life, today
Effects our capacity to explore the idea of peace and stillness, within our minds.
As our mind darts from one distraction to another
Do we ever allow a pause to arise within our pell mell thought trajectories?
Allow distractions to fade away
From your heart chakra, the location of your root mind, and
Something new and unexpected will arise
Will pervade your body mind
Easing your thoughts into a peaceful and rested mode
It takes just a little practice
Under the acacia tree
her veil of green protecting me
soft canopy of velvet grace
gathers me in sweet embrace.
And summoned by the call of crows
and riverboats in timeless shows
of movement, life and industry
within, around the ‘cacia tree.
The toil of nature, call of time
that beckons each to seek the shrine
upon which we might draw our faith
as pilgrims passing without trace.
So stop, and pause
allow the peace of blessings to arise from source
yes, from within this holy land
which holds your heart and guides your hand.
To follow in the Buddha’s path
of softening your tightened grasp,
allow your worries, fears to cease
and breathe the sound of inner peace.
