 Aware

Sitting in meditation, releasing;
Coming to breath as my anchor.
Descending the spiral staircase
From my mind to my body;
Opening my senses as portals
Into the eternal present moment.

Not attempting to float away
In some trance-like state;
Not attempting to stop thought.
Instead, becoming one with reality;
Feeling my heart beating rhythmically.
Fully alive, completely free… aware.

The mind slows as my attention
Pours into the fullness of life.
Realizing that my mind is not me;
It is only thoughts, only thoughts…
Without any depth in reality.
Awake… my breath flows peacefully.

The power of observation enables;
Rich is the soil this moment brings.
Planting the seeds in presence;
Escape from the mental chatter
That dulls my perception and flame.
Fully alive, completely free… aware.
