Dissolve Into Present Moment

A poem on being wide awake to witness life’s unfolding, now.

Be a witness
to each unfolding
wonder of present moment
now
and
now.

Participate in bliss:
being in body
and sound mind,
delighting in play
of light and darkness —
just present, here
uncluttered
shining
bright
awareness
(wide awake)
into each instant
and task.

How?
Practice.
Over and over,
practice.
Pause.
Breathe.
Smile.
Notice.

Seat yourself
as the witness
perspective
like eye of universe
from which to gaze.
We are at the center.

In this place,
respond by dissolving
into the present
moment.
Notice this,
then that.
Then, be what you notice.
Not separate
but rather loved to pieces:
where anywhere you are
is one with light
and open in all directions.
