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!
Yes, yes…I was thinking how much better it would be if we could learn these things EARLIER in life…
I guess it takes LIFE to make us learn these things.
Enjoyed this poem and the thought behind it. Love you. Nancy
