When I feel anger taking hold
When I feel my words becoming cold
When I feel ungrateful or jealous
When I act like a know-it-all zealot
When I can’t fall asleep
When I’ve dug in too deep
When I feel I’m off track
When I want my life back
Stillness welcomes me home
About the poem:
Can I go on a rant about stillness? Haha.
But, the thing is, I didn’t have this tool as a young person. I found it after age 40. So, if I didn’t know about it, certainly others are in the same boat. Developing the ability to add stillness to your life, means becoming the master of your own life. Now, wouldn’t that be fun?
I still think it’s funny that in the most argumentative, probably unhealthy relationship, my boyfriend suggested we learn meditation. I argued with him about its value. (Then, I went to meditation class and it changed my life!)
