Mindful Moment 7

Centering

A poem and a moment to practice called “Centering” by Danna Faulds

Here.  Right here, right now, bring to mind this place and time.
Invite it, even if it resists, to sit and witness
what it is to be alive.
Let there be no ulterior motive
in this moment but to be.

Rest on the waves of the breath 
and choose to experience all of it.  Let thoughts float
through and leave again,
as the mind slowly settles like
snow inside a shaken paperweight.

This is all there is. Here.
Right here and now.
