Mindful Musings: Jan 26

“Wisdom to Carry”

By: Forrest Rivers

brown and green tree trunk

The drama of life will consume you

If your mind is focused everywhere but here

And everywhere but now….

The wise don’t run and cower

Under a canopy of self-delusion

They embrace the impermanent tides

Of suffering and joy like trees

Who cling not to the sun and rain….

The time arrives in everyone’s life

When all must surrender

To the winds of change and fear not

The steady march of father time….

Death, as we will find

Is our humble teacher

And trusted guide

To the world of the great unknown

To the word beyond our minds….

Turn within and decide

To live without ego and pride

Turn within and see

That the bliss of being free

Abides in the stillness of nature.
