Our minds keep us busy and often it is simply to avoid connecting to our heart and listening to what we really need and listening to how we can nurture ourselves.
Below is a beautiful poem that Sa Silvano wrote to remind us that when we are busy with too many thoughts, we lose connection to our truth and from healing.
Blessed Be Stay in your heart Stay here
where there is truth
Leave all thoughts alone.
If something you read or hear is felt and experienced deep within as true, then it is a truth that has always lived within you.
Leave your worries, leave your anxieties, leave your cares, leave your weariness, leave your shame, leave your blame, leave your guilt, leave your fear… leave it all alone.
Don’t mess with it. Don’t engage with any of it.
Leave it all alone.
Processes are often created by the mind. Focus on the processes and you fall deeper into the mind.
Mind is of time – of the past and of the future. Mind is of beginnings and endings. Processes also have a beginning and an ending.
Whatever is experienced through the process or as a result of the process will soon fade, for nothing from the mind is lasting.
The art of being is simple. Become fully present in this moment and stay here, at peace with everything that is also here with you.
Now here in this moment there may be a movement. A thought, a feeling. Perceive and remember that you are not that thought nor that feeling. Remain the stillness, even in movement. Remain the silence, even in noise.
Nothing is happening in here, all is peace here, even whilst storm or chaos seems to surround, stillness remains through it all and when the storm subsides, stillness still is.
All that rises and falls, that lives and dies, that comes and goes – all this is not real – not abiding – transient – fleeting – meaningless.
That which is unchanging and eternal is the power that is, that has always been, before all beginnings and will continue beyond all endings.
This unchanging eternal aliveness, this Presence, this is your true nature.
