40 Days of Letting Go: Day 28 – Just for now, want nothing

Just for now – want nothing

Don’t wish to be someplace else

Be where you are

Don’t wish for more energy, or less

Watch your breath rise and fall and watch your energy

settle to where it needs to be

Stop planning and remembering

let thought disperse

Like autumn leaves falling

Until all that is left is the calm, clear seeing

of your branch-like mind

Yearn for nothing, no one

Pain or pleasure

Peace or war

Take a break from feeling incomplete

Let the calmness in your mind grow

Plant the seeds of contentment and joy

Don’t look for revenge or seek forgiveness

Just for now

Offer compassion to yourself

Just for now, want nothing

and through this practice

Ease will come

Insight will come

Compassion will grow

We wish you twenty minutes of mindfulness every day!
