No Matter What, If I Sit Still, There is Peace



No matter what,

If I sit still, there is peace.

Today’s offerings:

The sun brought warm gold

The sky unlimited sapphire

Cloud white pearls

The birds rainbow song

The water in my glass pure crystal

A breeze soft cool silk

My eyes brought seeing

Ears – hearing

Nose – scents

Mouth – tasting

Body – feeling

Mind – thinking

Breath – breathing.

Awareness – Ah

My heart – practice


a shining steady chorus of Ah! by PD Lyons Poetry



i just let the day go 

awareness, not of the passing

but of the being.

not moments, minutes, hours

but seeing, hearing, feeling

tasting, smelling, thinking.

free of linear, lists, concept, naming,

ever thing, any thing.

a true knowing

a shining quiet steady chorus of Ah…

freedom meditation / happy new year


Contemplate this,

We are all going to die.

Every one we know or who has known us

Will die.

I will die.


Then think on,

What is worth doing with every minute that is my life time?



Act accordingly.


Repeat as needed.


true, from Alan Watts

“A person who thinks all the time has nothing to think about except thoughts. So he loses touch with reality, and lives in a world of illusion.”

Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche


‎”Letting the mind to become peaceful and staying in meditation state of stillness free from many thoughts is called shamata or sustained calm. Recognizing the empty nature of the mind within that state of calm is called vipashyana or profound insight. Uniting shamata and vipashyana is the essence of meditation practice. It is said:

Look at the mind,
There is nothing to see.
Seeing nothing, we see the Dharma,
The source of all buddhas.”
