Mindfulness is a
state so peaceful you tend to
crave it more and more …

Initially though
the process seems quite
impossible to endure …

But gradually with
practice you feel you’ve
opened up a door …

To soon discover
the harmony of thoughts
arising to the fore …

They seem to fleet from
here to there like a
wandering restless spore …

Then you realize
that it is just a thought and
stare at it to the core …

That’s when such thought
slowly ceases again
your mind an empty score …

So you start anew
and view your mind which is
much clearer than before …

Like the waves of our
mixed emotions rushing
against a peaceful shore …

The tide of memories
from our past
just rise again once more …

We then consciously try
to soothe the ripples and
concentrate like before …

Mindfulness is a
state so blissful you tend to
crave it more and more …

Thrive Global
People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
