You have not grown old

Saturday, September 26, 2015


You have not grown old, and it is not too late
to dive into your increasing depths
where life calmly gives out its own secret.

Rainer Maria Rilke,

Yesterday was my 67th birthday. I am not old, and I am discovering life's secrets every day.
I am not stuck in old beliefs, and fears.

This day is mine to be free, and happy in.

Meditation is a priceless key,
and, simple moments of mindfulness
when we catch ourselves spinning off
into some dark depths of past or future.
Staying in this life right now, and,
realizing what a precious gift we have is simply awesome.

May you be free from suffering.
May you be healthy, and well.
May you find peace, and contentment.
May you be happy.
