Just As It Is


Just as it is
this moment is fine–
perfect even.

Just as it is,
this mind
needs nothing more
than to be what it is–
it is also fine.

This body,

This life,

And my family,
my friends,
my colleagues,
my marriage–

all fine.

It sure is nice to remember this
every once in a while.
It sure is utterly delightful to recall
that I don’t need to fight reality
if I want to experience change–
I take a moment to understand my perception,
and reality becomes the peace I’ve been seeking.

I come home,
and I realize that I could never really leave home.
Right here, at the center of being,
just as it is,
this moment is fine.
