The content arrives thick.
The news travels fast.
The screens flicker incessantly.
The outside informs our inside.
However this is falsehood — a lie.
Perhaps, the biggest lie of them all.
The words echo on and on,
the thoughts tesselate; they build.
The feelings come and go, in response to your outside.
The ghosts drop in uninvited, unwelcome.
The shiver of an unwanted emotion.
Those stories you tell your self; EVERY day…
They become your reality.
Regardless of where those thoughts and feelings hangout,
the real magic is happening in the space in between them.
This real form of magic can only unfold when a space is offered,
for it cannot exist in the vacuum of distraction.
The truth can never be squeezed.
It can neither be forced, nor manipulated:
For it just is.
If only we could learn to listen.
To those spaces in between.
From here, all truth becomes clear.
Tune into the silence.
Live from the spaciousness that is our birthright.
This is the place where wisdom exists;
Where you’ll find stillness, after all that movement.
Enlightenment — after all — does not exist anywhere
