Article by Paul Davis

Stillness speaks
Quiets my soul to keep
Frees me to not think
That's right, no thinking
Oops, are you thinking?
I know it's hard to stop
Since the mind is persisting
It seems to continuously
Be fighting and resisting
Precious sacred solitude
The power of presence
Captivating effervescence
Intoxicating aliveness
Invigorating in stillness
An irony that stumps us
In a society that says do
In a culture pressuring you
To always perform and act.
How pleasant it truly is
To withdraw from all that
Sit quietly and meditate
Go within and gravitate
Toward the depths within
Feel the greatness of zen
Let go of your ideological spin
Stop wrestling and feverishly fighting
Experience enlightenment transforming
Happily enter the world of being
As you do the stress is fleeing
The mental confusion melting
The worries and concerns leaving
The burdens of the day dropping
The guilt from yesterday dissolving
The fears of the future fading
Ah yes, now we're experiencing
The awesome power of presence
The sweet, sublime inner confidence
Experience and feel it from within
By no means is is unattainable or distant
Release the mental fixation with mysterious
Simply be, accepting what is unconditionally
Rejoice fully and dynamically experience
All the inner world and senses have to offer
Freedom to ride the waves like a surfer
Intuitive precision as that of a golfer
The blossoming of consciousness
Like a gorgeous hibiscus flower
Be fully present and forget the hour
Transcend the months and the days
Move beyond the minutes and delays
Simply be in the moment with exuberant praise
Let not yourself, nor your thoughts get in the way
For stillness is contemplative and enlightening today.
