Stillness







consciousness

is not going to come

down

from anywhere—

already here,

fundamental power

no books

no concepts

no ego fodder requirements

mostly automatic

but for I am…

entanglements

with mind stuff


log off this energy,

just remain

empty,

notice that space

of being

so effortless, natural

no need for spiritual

doing—

pay attention

chatter goes on & on & on

but

skip street fighting with it

rest in

reality without reflex

identifications

pretense's promises

faux feelings


this is radical

seeds of awakening

in a sleeping world

stay as you are

still—

let the natter of the mind

settle its dust in

the quietude of you

quality of being

sharpen it

over & over & over

again

&

again

&

again

abide in this

observation

establish within your breath,

your loving heart

energy

(works every time)

allow yourself

to simply be

solely

consciousness
