I AM enough

cropped-2d17-201a-d15c-6e711.jpg

Just a reminder:
You are enough.
You are beautiful.
You are perfect just as you are.
You are as good as everyone else.
You are loved.
You are provided.
You will always have enough.
You are safe.
You can relax now as whatever your problem is, it’s going to be alright.
You can breathe and smile, you are alive, and right now in this present moment ALL IS WELL.

That is not who I am

hat-head

I am a woman but being a woman is not who I am

I have a job, but my job isn’t who I am

I have a family, but my family isn’t who I am

I have a body, but my body isn’t who I am

I have a country, but my country isn’t who I am

I have beliefs, but my beliefs aren’t who I am

I have thoughts and opinions, but they are not who I am

I have a personality , but this isn’t who I am

I own things, but my things are not who I am

Who am I then?

I AM ME being aware that I am not all that.

I have forgotten

DSCF1471

I have forgotten

what it feels like to have a busy mind,

I have forgotten

what it feels like to never have space in between thoughts,

I have forgotten

how I couldn’t look at things without judging them,

I have forgotten

what it feels like to hear words in my head without pause,

I have forgotten

how I used to be still without any stillness,

I have forgotten

the fear of thinking I could be crazy,

I have forgotten

how I used to lose myself in the anxiety of the future,

I have forgotten

how I used to lose myself in the memories of the past,

I have forgotten

how I just didn’t know how to live the present.

Now I remember,

And I look around me to all these faces who are still asleep

and oh, I wish I could wake them up

show them the beauty of life

teach them how to stop their minds

and make them feel the peace of Now.

I have forgotten

but I will not forget

to help everyone remember

who they really are.

The meaning of life

IMG_5066

What is the meaning of life?

Is it the incessant quest for a future dream object?

The daily building of a future security?

A working path towards retirement?

The search for the happy ending of ever after?

Or is it more noticing what is already there,

what we already have and don’t really need

what our life is full of but that we hardly see

the joy and the love of the present moment

the life and the laughs of the daily instants

the peace and the beauty of nature events

the happiness that is

right

here

right

now.

Mindful poetry

The washer women’s delight

Some may know this tale alright

know the washer woman’s plight

Piles of laundry fill her sight

Washing, scrubbing ,morn till night

bending , lifting, nothing light

A thankless job, always trite

It’s seems her life is just a slight

Yet ,watch a while. Am I right?

Have I overlooked this site?

The sun is shining very bright

leaves are glistening in the light

A knowing grin ,very slight

birds are singing with delight

Her pose appears, more upright

A shirt is dancing like a kite

While butterflies play in flight

eyes are shining big and bright

A smile brings her face alight

how does she do it, such insight ?

Could it work for me? It might..

simply choose to,see a right?

And share the washer women’s delight?
