Breathe in and close your eyes.
Listen to the silence and breathe out.
Breathe in, counting the heartbeats,
Feeling the way life pumps rhythmically,
And vibrate with it. Breathe out.
Breathe in. Open up your thoughts.
It’s time to understand who you are,
And who you are also comprises
What peace may mean to you.
It’s not always the same thing to all.
For some it’s unconditional acceptance,
So let your past flow through you, see it,
But don’t try to catch any of it –
Just let it fall where it may,
And love the unique patterns that it made.
For some it’s knowledge, understanding,
So grab your finest sieve and go,
Pull away and apart and together
Everything you can get your hands on,
And try to discover your inner laws,
Your force and gravity and center.
Now open your eyes and look around,
And do the very same thing with the world,
Find your place in any way you like,
Just remember that it’s about the process
Not about the end result.
Peace is the journey in spite
Of the destination. It’s the one thing
That makes a difference to you – you.
