~ awake in this moment, at home in the world ~


January 25, 2020

Today, may you choose peace. May you not
make war with yourself, your family, your world.

May you choose calm over chaos, acceptance
over aggression, and surrender over struggle.

May you be kind to your body, and thankful
for how steadfastly it carries you through life.

May you be attentive to your mind,
and grateful for how clearly it guides you.

May you dwell fully in your kind heart,
which only aches to be tender and true.

Today, may you to learn to make peace
with each delicate moment, just as it is.

And may your quiet, unconflicted presence
serve to soothe and enliven the whole world.
