Our mind resembles a tumbling-down mountain stream –
So all we’re able to think about are interior “rushing sounds.”
How do we stop a tumbling-down mind long enough
To notice the shadows of leaves moving in the wind –
How “wake up” inside such an interior “commotion”?
We need to step back away from our rushing minds –
From these cinematic “selves” –
To rest a while in a country of peace –
Where “true reality” abides.
It’s difficult for us to experience love in a rushing-by life –
And almost impossible to enjoy peace when agitated –
We know it would be a surprise to discover God alive in our hearts during such times –
Since the only place God can ever truly “come alive” – is inside us.
For individuals, the heart is the equivalent of the solar system’s sun
Acting to center our lives – from beginning to end –
After all, isn’t “Love” what we like to call God when we finally understand
How truly “alive” God is!
