Poem: A Moment Came

A moment came, and for a mere few seconds


A moment came, and for a mere few seconds

the moment did not pass.

It stayed right where it was.

And the boy knew

even though nothing was different,

eveything had changed.

For the first time,

all the pieces were there.

And the boy did not know where they were exactly,

but he knew they were out there Somewhere,

waiting to be found.

And then the moment passed.

And the boy,

The boy felt complete.

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.
