Remain

Recommended Posts

remain

just remain here

in this space between two spaces

 

embrace it for what it is

 

the truth

the reality

where peace resides

and clarity

and all that is significant and lovely

 

do not be tempted to go

backwards into it

for that is oblivion

 

and do not be lured

forwards into it

for it does not exist there

 

all you require

all that is good and perfect

is right where you are

right now

To receive love, you have to give it...

Hi douglas,

 

 

What a wonderful exploration of the now!

 

remain

just remain here

in this space between two spaces

 

 

all you require

all that is good and perfect

is right where you are

right now

 

 

 

Thank you.

I'll echo Goldenlangur's and Dr. Con's sentiments, Douglas. This is truly a perfect expression of no delusions and no regrets. One can find peace, even happiness, in this celebration of "the now."

thank you gentlemen!

 

indeed. there is much peace and joy in the now. remaining in it sets one's mind free of a lot of clutter from past (which is gone) and the future (which is an abstraction) there is great mental and spiritual liberation within the now. our western minds have been too overloaded and burdened by too much thought, analysis and fear.

 

with this poem i endeavor to share the possible abreaction that comes from practicing remaining in the present. glad it seems to have worked!

 

be well and happy.
