Momentum

Standard

Once you get the ball rolling
it’s easier to keep it rolling
than it is to locate the ball
that once rolled into a dusty
corner and was eventually
forgotten.
Keep the momentum.
Anything counts.
Walking.
Brushing your teeth.
Sitting.
Breathing.
Chanting.
Laughing.
Dancing.
Singing.
Praying.
Playing.
Anything can count as a practice
if attended to every day
with a clear intention to awaken
as a result of your diligence.
Your momentum
builds strength and persistence.
Thank you for your willingness
to do the good work that
will help us all remember
who we really are.

This One Room

Standard

Simply being…
That’s all I practice during meditation.
Of course I get hooked
by many thoughts
by sensations in my body
by impatience…
but then I take a deep breath,
determined to hold my seat,
to stay,
to remain there
as I set out to do.
Sometimes I wonder
what doors will open
as a result of my willingness
to sit still in this one room.
