when energy seems scarce
and the demands placed on it
seem to be increasing,
I am grateful for little moments of rest,
of just being in this moment
and savoring what I have.
I don’t need to understand every single thing.
If I have one purpose in this life,
it is to awaken to this moment
and to love it with all of my being.
If I profess to understand anything,
then doesn’t my understanding
cover the essence of now
in a mask of presumption?
I presume to know nothing
and allow myself to see like a child.
Knowing that I don’t know,
my eyes are bright and open
and I look,
into the great mirror of existence.
