Mind at Peace
When the mind is at peace,
The world too is at peace.
Nothing real, nothing absent.
Not holding on to reality,
Not getting stuck in the void,
Nor are either holy or wise, just
An ordinary fellow who has completed his work.

I have yet to complete my work.
I too have a distance to travel as of yet, but we must stop and smell the buttercups occasionally in order to fuel our ‘souls’.

My mind is abuzz with my latest distraction: new job, training, and requirements. So yeah; peace may only come through sleep. 😀
Sleep is just what you need then Jan! I’m glad you’re being kept on your toes and also appreciated at work (putting it as positively as she can think) throws a wide grin his way
