the moment

Is life universal and the
moment always
existing?

Why
does soil exist?
To leave tracks in?

Why does water exist?
To sail
on?

And do whatever with,
in or on? What if there’s no
official purpose for water or soil?

Does that go for the whole universe
too? Yes, because everything
is nothing but
isness.

Do
we ride
the isness
and make purpose our own?

Our
reason
for being?
Even language
came out of nothing.
Is everything a creation?

Is it that even gravity
pulls only in the
moment?

The past and
the future are locked
away and shouldn’t we be glad?

“Love the one you’re with”
as the tune advises
so, take care of
your body?

Find if you can
the moment and exist
there and experience your being

Is this the ultimate game
and so became part
of religion.

Yet
the game
can be played
by a single player.

And a person never has
to join anything
to play.

If you want to play, I can recommend the book  Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind by Shunryu Suzuki. He encourages one to advance to the traditional sitting posture with crossed legs as soon as one can. I found (out of necessity) a straight-backed chair or even a car seat can be used to advance in my practice. Advance to the traditional posture when desired.

The important thing is meditation.

Also, excellent meditation instruction can be found in Dr. Herbert Benson’s 1970‘s book The Relaxation Response. (A scientist checks out the claims of Transcendental Meditation.) Used copies of both books can be purchased on Amazon.com.
