Being in the Moment

Remain within the profundity of your feelings, undistracted.

The world just isn’t there.

Beyond Intellect, within the mind

Nothing arises.

As the Great River flows on,

whatever meditation, sitting you do

Silently, there is virtue in it.

THIS is the path of all Buddhas,

Enlightened ones.
