Listen to the world

Full lotus, knees hurting.
Breathe unsteady, mind wandering.

Focus on breath, mind calming.
No pain, opening the ears.

Bee humming, butterflies flapping.
Ants tickling, beetles scratching.

Somewhere is music, cars and a plane.
My mind is just blank, absorb everything.

No filter, just listening, not thoughts.
Realizing the variety in the world.

Taking up sound waves, enjoying nature.
Being part of them, listen to the breath.

Same, similar, different

We all have our routines. Every morning, night, at lunch, before sleeping, while we are sleeping.

Look closer!

Nothing is quite the same, though it might look similar. Every morning while preparing breakfast, we are distracted by different things, in another way. Every morning our focus drifts slightly differently.

Look even more close!

Never falls the same leave twice. Not even in a similar way. Each leave has a different path of falling. Our days are like leaves, they are different. You are different, every day. You only need to realize it. Feel the differences. Live the changes every day. Recognize that you do every day something new, even if you think you have done it thousand times.

Bring you mind close to the task at hand!

Breaking the Paradigms of Life

We all assume how our life should be and how to realize the world. Only if we challenge our assumptions in life we can consider something else and grow beyond it. Our paradigms are the sum and reflections of our life’s conditions and we can rethink if they are what we think they are or if we need to reconsider. 

Sit’n meditate

I sit.
Birds starting their evening chorus.
I sit.
The sun waves Goodbye in a red ocean.
I sit.
Nature silences.
I sit.
The first bats are shooting by.
I sit.
Calm mind.
I sit.
All quiet now.
I sit.

That life

We live that life but want that other life.
We do these things but want to do other things.
We see have one thing but urgently need the newer one.

That life is the life of the Ego.
That life is the life of sufferings.
That life has to become this life.

Here and now.
We don’t need these or that life.
We have our life.
Here and now.

Summer heat

No air moving.
Every movement is too much.
The sweat moves slowly.

The air burns.
The tarmac is burning.
Burning heat all around.

Clouds are appearing.
Clouds with refreshing rain.
Clouds shielding the sun.

The rain comes down in big drops.
Rainwater cools the air, the tarmac, the people.
You dance in the warm rain.
