Focus on one thing for a while

Focus on one thing for a while…
Just a little longer than usual

Watch your footsteps on a woodland walk
Sit, follow your in-breath and out-breath
Stand and look into the distance with a quiet mind
Feel the contact between your hands in prayer

When your mind goes elsewhere
Come back to the object of awareness

Moments of peace and stillness come of themselves
Without effort
Doing nothing, everything is done

At our root
We're not the endless thoughts and images
That stream through our minds

At our root
We're limitless beings of light, love, and peace

At our root
Pure consciousness
