Before Meditating: A Reminder to Self (or, just what the Self always wanted)

 

Ouroboros-dragon-serpent-snake-symbol

although here a body sits
on the cushion “I” don’t exist
“My” thoughts are self-feeding
not something worth heeding
like this bird chatter that natters-
not a thing that matters

the mind holding fast
to future and past
can cease to hold sway
’til some other day
For now this body that sits.
Is not that…..  is THIS
